jonadkins Posted January 2, 2008 Share Posted January 2, 2008 I had always known this work (BWV 769) with the movements in this order: canon in the octave fifth seventh by augmentation various and thought that the movement with various canons by inversion a glorious way to end a work which I have gradually come to realise is one of Bach's greatest and most beautiful. Now, the generally accepted practice seems to be to end with the canon by augmentation: octave fifth various seventh augmentation This may well be the "authentic" order, but I can't help prefering the other one!
