"Bach" temperament

I want to point out that the "Bach" temperament in the A minor Fantasia soundclip is not exactly the same as Lehman's interpretation. For those who are interested in temperaments, it is based on the same structure, derived from the "squiggle" on the title page of the Well Tempered Clavier, however I distributed the comma slightly differently, so there is no wide 5th. I believe the whole concept needs to be experimented with and interpreted in different ways. What I have arrived at here is, I believe a practical interpretation of the same overall concept.
