    Eight Little Preludes and Fugues. I have the score for these and they are charming. I am unable to find the BWV numbers for certain, but I believe they 553 through 560. If I must pick one it would be the one in E minor (BWV 555?). It has a lovely melody.

    Larger organ works seem muddled to me - too reverberating and cacophonous.

    Like the Passacaglia & Fugue, BWV 582 and Pastorale, BWV 590.
    Also like the Schubler Chorales, some of them are very pretty - really I am still pretty new to Bach on the organ though so this could all change pretty rapidly.

    Toccata and Fugue in D minor for me, amazing piece!
    I'm a fan of Classical Music who enjoys going on ebay.com!

    Though I don't know the BVW numbers, I'm pretty partial to the Passacaglia and Fugue in c minor, the Toccata and Fugue in C Major and the "Fugue a la Gigue".
