Little Fugue in G-minor (BWV 578)

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.

It’s this very scat version that we are going to listen here, arranged by the Swingle Singers and performed by the MLADA Choir in 2012.

Toi qui as entendu - Score Cover

Toi qui as entendu

I composed Toi qui as entendu very recently, after discovering this wonderful poem by Odile Riondet at the yearly general assembly of ACCREL. Inspired by the Gospel of John, chapter 3, it is meant to be used for baptisms or for the second week of easter and is built around a single word: “Chante !” (“Sing!” in French).
