This beloved work by J. S. Bach is arranged here for Alto (Treble) Recorder with a fully realized keyboard part that is accessible to intermediate players and can be played on piano, organ, or harpsichord. Transposed to C major, it is perfect for weddings, concerts, or solo/ensemble repertoire. For worship, it can be performed almost any time since it exudes peace and joy, but it is particularly suited for Advent and Christmas since it comes from Cantata 147, "Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben" ("Heart and Mouth and Deeds and Life"), a cantata about Mary, the mother of Jesus, visiting her cousin Elizabeth and singing the Magnificat (see Luke 1:26-56). An optional part is provided for Cello/Bassoon. An arrangement with an easier keyboard part is also available as are arrangements for Soprano (Descant) Recorder or Tenor Recorder and other instruments and ensembles.
