Remarks BWV 552/2 is notated in 4/4 time in the first and in 6/8 time in the second part. In the third part the notation is identical with the original publication. The fugue is notated on 2 braces continuously. The entries of the pedal are marked by "P" [missing in m. 128 = m. 92 in o.p.].
BWV 582 probably is an arrangement for playing on manuals only in which the sections playable on the pedal were left out and the sections playable on the manuals were connected by short interludes. The end of 2 1/2 measures was added freely.
