Piano Accompaniment, Alto Sax - Intermediate
Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Arranged by Daniel Leeman. Baroque Period, Sacred, Wedding. Set of Parts. 5 pages. Published by Daniel Leeman (S0.187745).

Item Number: S0.187745

Bist Du Bei Mir, though popularly attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach, was an aria from Stölzel's opera Diomedes.

It is a favorite selection for weddings, commonly chosen as an offertory or communion piece. Despite its traditional Baroque architecture, there is a romantic yearning between the solo and continuo parts. The text translation is also appropriate for weddings, “If you are with me, then I will go gladly unto [my] death and to my rest,” reflecting upon the traditional “Til death do us part” commitment of many wedding vows.

This piece is rated for intermediate level players. Though range and rhythms are not difficult in this piece, the greatest challenge is proper tonal control to achieve beautiful lyricism.  .
