This is the downloadable sound file of "From Depths of Woe," BWV 686 by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) arranged for Brass Choir by Martin Dicke. A full score and set of parts are available by visiting the music page at or as a digital download on This intense setting of the Martin Luther (1483-1546) hymn AUS TIEFER NOT was originally composed for organ by Bach as a part of his Clavier-Übung III (Keyboard Practice III). It is a unique six-part setting in which four voices are played by the hands and two by the feet. Bach places the melody of the hymn in the top pedal part. Scored for two trumpets, two French horns, two trombones, Euphonium, and Tuba, this arrangement for Brass Choir places the chorale melody (cantus firmus) in the Trombone 2 part. This part is doubled by a French horn so that the hymn tune stands out from the thick polyphony. The original setting has been transposed down a major third.
