Bach, J.S. – Cantata 118 for Brass Quintet.
A very fine arrangement for Brass Quintet of Bach’s great Cantata 118, O Jesu Christ, meins Lebens Licht (O Jesus Christ, light of my life) by Vancouver hornist, teacher and chamber musician Geoffrey Leader. Written in 1736/1737, one of the original versions of this motet-like work is scored for four-part chorus with two litui, cornetto, three trombones and organ. About 9 minutes in length, this arrangement can be performed by moderately advanced performers and is modest in range demands.
Parts include: 2 Trumpets in B-flat, Horn, Trombone and Tuba.
