Thursday music spot: Bach's Fantasia and fugue in G minor (BWV 542)

Two friends of mine who studied music told me years ago that they and their friends at college sang the fugue which is the second part of this lovely piece of organ music by Bach, referring to Ebenezer Prout who arranged many Bach fugues, to the words, 

"Oh Ebenezer Prout, 
 You are a clever man 
'Cause you make Bach fugues as easy as you can, 
'Cause you make Bach fugues as easy as you ca - a - a - a - an!" 

 Now I always remember those words when I hear it played!
