Toccata in G major, BuxWV165
The Toccata in G major, BuxWV165, is for manuals alone. Bars 1–37 provide an animated introduction; at bar 38 begins a three-voice fugal passage based on a subject consisting entirely of semiquavers; and after a further extemporary passage, Buxtehude writes a coda in which variety is provided by the insertion of a jig-like passage.
