The Three Preludes and a Fugue on BACH were originally
composed for Claire Edwardes for performance at the New England
All four movements are based on the BACH (Bb, A, C, B natural) that J S Bach used in his final unfinished fugue. Each movement uses the motif in different ways. The first prelude uses the notes as extended pedal points, the second as a melodic motif in a French overture, the third as a repeated groundbass and the fugue again melodically.
