Johann Sebastian Bach's "Great" Fugue in G minor, BWV 542, with an animated graphical score

Q: What's so "great" about this fugue?
A: It's called "great" to distinguish it from the other fugue in G minor (BWV 578) which is called "little"; you can compare it here:
The BWV 578 fugue is a stand-alone piece, but BWV 542 is a pair of pieces; its full title is "Fantasia and Fugue in G minor."

Q: What stops are you using?
A: The soprano, alto and bass voices are from the Ahlborn-Galanti Zilbermann module:
Soprano: Prinzipal 8, Dulzfloete4
Alto: Holz Gedackt 8, Quintade 8, Klein Gedackt 4
Bass: Subbass 16, Posaune 16
The tenor voice is from an A-G Romantic module:
Tenor: Flauto Mirabilis 8, Quint Flute 2-2/3, Piccolo 2
