For those who haven't already seen it, the current "Organists' Review" carries an article by Stuart Neame stating that there is statistical proof that Bach was, after all, the composer of the famous Toccata in D minor, BWV 565. Neame's very convincing hypothesis is that Bach wrote it as a teenager, deliberately making it appear to be an improvisation which he committed to memory and used when demonstrating the Arnstadt organ he had been commissioned to inspect, in order to impress the authorities there with his abilities in the hope that he might be appointed organist (which he was).
