The service was OK too.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

Are you sure that people are not listing it = simply as "Passacaglia" in the same way that Buxtehude's Toccata in F is actually = a Toccata and Fugue? SMG

So certain Bach editions called such works "Passacaglia," in the case of the work in question.   Similarly, the commonly-known "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" was actually entitled "Toccata" in the Bach Gesellschatft edition, for only = one example.   Frequently the North German toccata was actually an opening section following by a series of fugal sections, sometimes separated from each = other by a brief passage in other compositional procedure. Such works were = often also called simply "Toccata," and despite the fugal sections, the word "fugue" never appears in the title.   As with so many other things, the terminology is far from clear and exact. But to summarize: most of the time, when you see the title "Passacalgia in C minor" by Bach, you're dealing with an organist who = either knows that that's what Bach called it or perhaps who simply takes that precise title from some edition but who does play the fugue as well.   Cordially,   Karl E.
