This work, from the Easter cantata, "Denn du wirst meine Seele" was written by J. L. Bach, a distant cousin of J. S. Bach. Originally scored for soprano solo, strings, and continuo, this edition provides an opportunity for unison voices to sing the original aria with any of the three instrumental options listed above. In addition to the original text, 2 English texts are provided. The first provides the Easter message and sentiment of the original German text while the second celebrates creation and the dawning of a new day. The three texts make for a scholarly and practical appropriate for use with children's choirs in both sacred and secular contexts. An IPA Pronunciation Guide and a Teaching Guide for Directors are provided in the Full Score.
