Under the title of Kleinere Werke (Short Pieces), the second volume of organ works by Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach in the Wiener Urtext Edition contains all works written by the composer except for the multi-movement sonatas for organ. The fugues, in particular, prove that C. Ph. E. Bach was an attentive pupil of his father. The pieces for musical clock are a varied selection of pieces in the style galant (a clear, uncomplicated style) which were originally written for mechanical instruments and which are best suited to be performed on the organ. Along with the organ sonatas published in Vol. 1, this is probably the most comprehensive collection of works for organ by Bach's second eldest son. For advanced players.
