Toccata in d minor BWV 565 by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

The opening movement of the much longer Toccata and Fugue in d minor BWV 565, this is probably the most famous piece of organ music. It is not especially suitable for weddings, except those with a gothic theme, but it is often requested. Rather intriguingly, this most famous piece of organ music by J S Bach is now though to be not originally by Bach, not for the organ (but for the violin) and not in d minor. It's still a great piece, though.
