This is the downloadable sound file of the Partita on "O Sacred Head, Now Wounded" for Woodwind Quintet by Martin Dicke. A full score and set of parts are available by visiting the music page at or as a digital download on Based on the tune HERZLICH TUT MICH VERLANGEN by Renaissance composer Hans Leo Hassler (1564-1612), this partita has a chiastic structure of five-movements. Two chorale settings frame inner movements that employ doleful ostinatos and a quasi-canon. At the center is a bicinium that turns into a trio at the cadences. With anguished and unconventional harmonies, the work begins fortissimo on a second inversion of an F major seventh chord and ends pianissimo seven minutes later on an A major chord. Originally composed for organ, this partita works well for Woodwind Quintet and is particularly suitable for Lent, Holy Week, or communion services.
