The pieces in the two work groups Three Preludes and Fugues (1837/38) and Six Sonatas (1844/45) can be called without exaggeration the first important organ works of the 19th century. With them, Mendelssohn ushered in the "second golden age of organ music," following the Baroque era. The two books presented here (Three Preludes and Fuges = EB 8745; Six Sonatas = EB 8768) are separate editions of the volume Mendelssohn: Orgelwerke 1 (EB 8641). Organists can thus individually acquire the collections formerly known as op. 37 and op. 65, which are now firmly rooted in the Urtext of the Leipzig Mendelssohn edition.
