Dear organist friends,
Is there anyone out there that can identify the composer(s) of the attached file.
I recently bought a 19C bound volume dating from around 1860 of organ music and this manuscript item was bound in at the rear of the album which featured such composers as Adolph Hesse,(5 Opuses) Niels Gade, Mendelssohn, Aug. Freyer, Carl Geissler, and C.H. Rinck,(2 Opuses) and of course N.N.
The last of the two fugues which are on the same subject has written above it "fuga van A G Ritter" (see last page of scan) which tells me that whoever wrote it out was Dutch and not German because he correctly gives the title of the work as "Praeludium und fuge", "van" (Dutch) instead of "von" (German). I am assuming the Praeludium und fuge are by a German composer, as the style is very Germanic, but who?
In any case enjoy the music even if we can't find out who the composer is.
