Unlike most of my other preludes, this one is in only two parts, and overall much more in the spirit of J.S. Bach. The prelude is based on the opening five notes of the hymn tune in 4 to 1 diminution, and makes use of 2-part invertible counterpoint.
The subject of the fugue is the hymn's opening phrase. The fugue also features a full counter exposition (in the major subdominant); stretto; and augmentation.
This is a large, majestic work, and technically demanding.
