The Little Fugue in G-Minor (BWV 578) of Johann Sebastian Bach is an organ piece composed between years 1703 and 1707. This fugue is very popular for several reasons.
First of all, it’s a serious piece of music but technically accessible to intermediate level organists, which is usally not the case with organ works of Bach, most of them require high organistic skills.
Second, this piece is pretty easy to transcribe for other instruments, piano, for instance. But also for voices, as its wonderful theme melodic line makes of it a perfect jazz scat voice arrangement candidate.
