Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott (Our God is a secure fortress), BWV 80 is a church cantata based on Martin Luther's hymn that Bach composed for Reformation Day around the year 1723.
This movement Aria and Chorale is the second movement of the cantata. The Euphonium/Trombone part performs the bass solo and the Trumpet 1 part performs the Soprano/Oboe solo which is the Chorale itself in an embellished style of the melody.
Justin Bland has done a superb job of arranging this beautiful movement of about 4.5 minutes in length for moderately advanced performers.
Instrumentation is: Trumpet 1 (C & B-flat parts are provided), Trumpet 2/Flugelhorn in B-flat, Horn, Euphonium/Trombone in bass clef & Tuba.
