Munich years also saw Reger's marriage to Elsa von Berken, and additions to the household in the shape of two adopted daughters, Lotti and Christa, to whom the composer was tirelessly devoted. Max Reger's appointment to professor of composition and director of music at the University of Leipzig in brought confirmation of his position as a composer of significance, a distinguished conductor and performer, as well as a teacher and academic of outstanding intellectual gifts.
Leipzig, however, had not been the first city to accord him academic honours; had brought an honorary doctorate from Jena University, and Reger marked the occasion with one of his finest works, the monumental setting of Psalm , Op That Reger's organ works gained rapid recognition was due in no small part to the pioneering advocacy of Germany's most celebrated organist at the turn of the century, Karl Straube , the composer's exact contemporary and one of his most robust supporters.
Straube, Leipzig's Thomaskantor from unti, gave the first performances of many of Reger's organ works, and of several of the finest of them, including the Fantasia, Op 27 and the Introduction, Passacaglia and Fugue, Op , which were dedicated to him.

Several pieces from the set, published in Leipzig in in two volumes, were 'recorded' by Reger himself, using the newly developed Welte-Mignon player organ system. Gwilym Beechey's authoritative account suggests, the individual pieces are conceived on a more lavish scale than those of the Opp 59 and 65 sets, and several were clearly intended to be performed in tandem; these include the Prelude and Fugue in E minor Nos.

Reger's fugue, based on the principles of the seventeenth century Ricercar , is in five parts, with no secondary fugal subject, and a modestly proportioned final stretto. The remaining pieces are of varied origin and idiom, and include a delightful Moment Musical in D major, No 4 , and an eloquent Romanze in G minor, No 8.
