J.S. Bach's Wachet Auf has been arranged almost as many times as Pachelbel's Canon. What makes this version different is that the melody appears in all voices rather than the standard trumpet solo with brass accompaniment. Also this rendition does not require the use of the piccolo trumpet which allows high school players to approach this beautiful piece and add it to their repertoire.
