Dear Friends:

 

Ashamed to say that I've never learned the Fugue. Is there a preferred edition ?

Not too interested in scholarship. Want an edition edition that is well laid-out & fingered for comfortable and quick learning. Any thoughts ?

I recommend the E.H.Thorne version, published by Bayley and Ferguson in a volume [six Organ Pieces - S.S.Wesley]. You'll not find this new anymore, but second-hand copies turn up regularly. I also have the version from Hinrichsen's Tallis to Wesley series here, but this is not terribly helpful to play from since it reproduces the original score which doesn't actually work on 99% of the organs one actually meets.

I find Walter Emery's edition thoroughly practical.
