Still a Bach Christmas by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Arranged by Jay Althouse. Choir Secular. SATB choir. Choral Octavo; Masterworks. Choral Designs. Baroque; Christmas; Masterwork Arrangement; Winter. Choral Octavo. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.11615).
A well-crafted choral work incorporating Bach's famous "Air" from orchestral Suite in D, the best loved carol, "Still, Still, Still," and just a touch of "O Holy Night." A simple adaptation of Bach's keyboard harmonies is used throughout as the piano accompaniment. Sensitive and enchating. New text by the arranger. Could become a holiday classic!
