My attempt at writing a fugue (or rather a fughetta) for organ. Obviously, don't expect the brilliance of great masters like Buxtehude or Bach, it's banally simple in comparison and probably sounds like a blatant rip-off. I played the manual and bass part seperately on my keyboard, though I do have access to a real organ (at the church I work for) But: 1) I'm not good enough with bass melody pedalling and 2) making a decent recording of a pipe organ is... difficult
. To say the least.
Anyway, I'm also including a pdf score cause if you're like me, analysing a fugue without a score is pretty much impossible. Note that the top staff is notated an octave lower than it sounds, that unregistered-message is covering up the little "8" on the clef at the start.Prompt:
Fughetta in C minorSize:
The fugue starts in C minor, modulates rather randomly and ends up in B major, just a half step away from the tonic, which is either genius or just very stupid - you decide ^^ (I incline to the latter...)Fughetta in C minor

And I was so bugged with how my "ending" prompt sounded (I don't know why I used that strange "honky-tonk" kind of piano-sound) that I decided to re-record it today. I like it a lot better now, but it's far from perfect. Needless to say, the solo bit at the end still sounds very pathetic =P I'm such a sloppy player...Ending
