Two neglected g (6th Suite: Prélude)


6th Suite  in D major  BWV 1012



Bar 86, last note: Here, I took g (c in G major) according to Kellner. I think Anna Magdalena has mistaken. It is a little thing, so a (d in G major) is also possible but g is more natural than a. 

Bar 91, last note: 4 manuscript copies show (c  in G major) unanimously.
What a beautiful 7th note it is! Why most editions took a, except Bazelaire and Henle edition? It is a shameful tradition from Paris first edition!
