Although the Danish composer worked for many years as an organist in Copenhagen, he wrote only few works for the organ. His undisputed major opus for this instrument is Drei Tonstücke op. 22, three pieces that were originally (in 1851) components of a four-movement sonata. Gade then rejected one movement, chose a looser, less cyclical title and had the little collection published the following year by Breitkopf & Härtel. The new edition is based on this first printing, whereby Gades authors copy as well as the autograph engravers copy were also consulted.
