In a letter to Johann Mattheson of 28 December 1739, Walther wrote that he had composed, in addition to 92 vocal works and 119 keyboard works based on chorales, only very few instrumental works and keyboard pieces. We can assume that the surviving eight free organ works represent the sum of Walther's contribution to this category. In the same letter Walther also quotes the pieces written by other composers which he had transcribed for the keyboard, "a total of 78 altogether".

This surprising high number would mean that 64 arrangements would be lost, because only 14 transcriptions have come down to us. 13 of these transcriptions are contained in the same source, the autographic Codex actually preserved in the Staatsbibliothek of Berlin. Only the Concerto per la Chiesa in g major del Signor Telemann has been passed down separately. All the trascriptions were intended for the organ and seem to be collected in a selection made by the composer himself. About the lost repertoire, we can only surmise that those pieces were possibly not intended for the organ but principally for the harpsichord (like J. S. Bach's 16 well-known concerto transcriptions BWV 972-987).

The late recording signed Simone Stella for the pre-bachian cycle. The 4-microphone recording includes the complete concert transcriptions known.
