Remarks BWV 550/1: The pedal solo in mm. 13-22 is arranged for the left hand here. The pedal presumably joins in first with the pedal point on G. In m. 46 the first chord becomes the closing chord of this part which will be repeated from m. 1. The second part in which the pedal part is arranged for the left hand (with the exception of the pedal point), too, and the middle parts are simplified, begins with an added upbeat; the repetition of this part begins after m. 58a.
BWV 590/4: The musical text of this fugue for manuals only is largely authentic (no arrangement).
