J S Bach Festive Choral Settings from Cantatas (arranged for Choir & Organ) Vocal Score

- Festive choral movements (Ger/Eng), arranged for choir and organ

- For church services and concerts

- Straight-forward organ reductions

The six choral settings of this edition come from cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach offering richly sounding ensemble forces for festive occasions of the ecclesiastical year (New Year, Easter, Ascension Day, Whitsuntide, Trinity Sunday).  These arrangements for choir and organ by the church musician and organist of the Stiftskirche Tübingen, Ingo Bredenbach, will allow choirs unable to call on large orchestral forces with wind instruments and strings to perform these choral settings. Concertante cantata movements giving prominence to the choir have been selected; at the same time their texts do not restrict them to the particular religious holiday they were meant for in the Church year.  These arrangements follow the score of the “New Bach Edition”.  They are playable on every two-manual instrument with pedal.  The arrangements available here, however, require no imitation of the orchestral sound, but stand as independent versions
