Prelude and Fugue in G major - (2008)
This little prelude and fugue is akin to the little
Prelude and Fugue in D major, composed for a single stop and a small
or portative organ (single manual). The prelude's motive is an arpeggio of
thirds which sings out under and then over a set of parallel triads. This is
the essential schemata for the work.
The fugue subject is a differing arch of thirds, related to the prelude's
opening motive. The subject and answer appear in the normal tonic-dominant
relationship, and the texture is essentially a two-voiced counterpoint.
