The subject of the fugue is that of Bach’s ‘Little’ Fugue in G minor, BWV 578, abbreviated, and with a new counter-subject, which is developed on its own at bar 31.

There is a canon at the octave starting at bar 48 of the fugue, and the first and second halves of the subject are superimposed in the coda, starting in bar 60.

The Prelude is published as a separate piece on Scoreexchange here:

A comment on the Prelude: ’Our string quartet enjoyed playing this delightful piece, and we’ll certainly be playing it again. The parts are well written for the instruments, so we were able to sight-read through it without problems. I’d recommend this to anyone who likes a tune.’ Jill Elliott, Violinist
