URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.
Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.
Copyright
Misc. Notes 600 dpi. Page size is 9" × 12". Henle's logo has been removed from the front matter due to copyright. Because the editors' preface is dated 1972/73, the uploader believes the 2009 copyright date on the first page is bogus.
See BWV 951 for the accompanying fugue.

Misc. Comments

  • Bach's authorship is uncertain; possibly composed by Wilhelm Hieronymus Pachelbel. On the other hand, Grove Music does not list this as doubtful or spurious.
