Often it's identified as simply "Passacaglia in c minor" on the jacket and liner, but =   *all* of the recordings in my collection include the fugue.   Gregory wrote, >>Did you know that Pasacaglia comes from the Spanish words >>Pasar en Calle?

Apparently the name referred to streetwalking prostitutes. Early explorers brought home this naughty = South American strutting dance and Renaissance Spanish and Italian composers cleaned it up for the European audience!   Lelia Loban
