Bach's celebrated Cantata #51 has finally been scored for brass quintet. The flowing soprano line is given to the first trumpet, the original trumpet part to the second trumpet and the remaining string parts are divided between the horn, euphonium and tuba. This is an ideal piece for a recital or a wedding and accessible to almost all ensembles. Trumpet parts are in E-flat with alternate parts in B-flat. No part is uninteresting, especially the tuba which has been given Bach's technical continuo line!
