We present Bach's Ricercar a 6, from the Musical Offering, tuned into Vicentino 3rd-Comma adaptive just intonation. This tuning is implemented here as 19-equal division of the octave, but fifths and major thirds are raised by 7.22 cents, which equals 19-edo approximation of a third comma (i.e. 1200*(log_2 (3/2) - 11/19)). In this setting, fifths are just, and major thirds are tuned at 386.17 cents (-0.15 cents from just). Minor thirds are tuned at 315.79 cents (+0.15 cents from just).
