Harpsichord solo and organ solo performances of Johann Sebastian Bach's Modulation Canon, from the Musical Offering. Bradley Lehman, March 13-14, 2005.

Each time the piece repeats, it has changed key so it is a step higher in pitch.... The unequal tuning also helps it to sound increasingly intense during this process.

The full-length CD "Playing from Bach's Fancy" is available at , along with further information about this tuning method.
