Extra Information Mendelssohn composed these when he was 12 years old while studiyng with Carl Friedrich Zelter. These fugues were not composed for performance in mind, but as counterpoint excercises. Mendelssohn also used chorale melodies to experiment with the cantus firmus technique in some of the fugues.

There are 17 fugues in the R 1-17 section, but the R9, R13 and R15 are incomplete, and not listed here above.
