By far the longest piece here is the Incipit Fundamentum of Conrad Paumann (c.1410-1473), a sort of cycles of études consisting of various contrapuntal devices over bass themes. Although we can appreciate the artistic merits of such a piece (or rather individual pieces played in succession, not really variations) today, it was undoubtedly designed with a didactic purpose in mind.
