Remarks BWV 713a = version with pedal [probably principal version, BWV 713, on manuals only]; cf. the manuscript of the Scholz collection in the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek (Mus. Hs. 35149, fascicle 6), which gives BWV 713 in the version on manuals only. BWV 769/2: This is probably a realisation of the original publication. In the original publication the entry of the 2. voice of the canon is adumbrated only by a signum congruentiae and a short incipit.
The pedal part of BWV 769/2 is written an octave below.
