Misc. Comments

Published in Band III of the Griepenkerl/Roitzsch Orgelwerke Edition released in 1844/1845 (first 3 volumes- more volumes released ca.1900) by C.F. Peters. (However, as the review of this in NZM points out, this work appeared under Peters' imprint earlier still, in 1832 to be specific: see Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1832), p.42 - toccatas and fugues for organ or piano in F and C, fantasy in D (minor?) for organ or piano, etc.)
