The well known Sinfonia Pastoral comes from the second part of Bach's Christmas Oratorio.
It is scored for 2 flutes, 2 oboe d'amore, 2 oboe da caccia, strings, continuo

I have added natural horns in G. ( Horns in F are provided as well)

Bach uses the  4 "oboes" to indicate the shepherds, as a counter melody to that of the strings.

I have used the 2 oboes and  bassoon 1 as the mainstay of the oboe quartet and given the sustained notes played by Bach's 4th oboe to horn or clarinet. This keeps the counter melody on the double reed instruments, and gives a fair refection of Bach's original.

Flutes, clarinets and bassoon2 play the original string parts.

Arranged  here for double wind quintet and bass.
