Passacaglia (from Cantata No. 12) composed by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Arranged by Larry Daehn. For concert band. Grade 3. Score and set of parts. Duration 3 minutes 16 seconds. Published by Daehn Publications (DH.DP200207-SET).
This beautifully sorrowful Bach melody appears in his 'Cantata No. 12' and again in the 'Crucifixus' of his 'Mass in B Minor.' Every voice and every part contribute to the success of this work's message. A wonderful piece for teaching good tone and phrasing, and a great way to bring the beauty of Bach into your classroom.
