Prelude in D, BuxWV 139

The Prelude in D major, BuxWV 139 is a work by Dietrich Buxtehude, part of his collection of 'free form organ works' -as opposed to those based on a sacred melody. It is an unusual work in its harmonic development, featuring a fugal section reaching very distant tonal centers, and harsh dissonances). The form is also very rare, and it has been suggested that the piece actually answered to a program.
