Georg Böhm (1661-1733): Vater unser im Himmelreich

3 parts2 pages04:01a year ago487 views
Oboe, Other Woodwinds, Recorder
A particularly beautiful “coloratura” organ chorale prelude of the type beloved of Böhm, but with many similar in Buxtehude, and, of course, Bach.

The left-hand is in the style of a continuo realization, but contrapuntally independent of the (ornamented) cantus (which is not the case with true

Violin(6), Viola, Harpsichord(3), Cello(2), Contrabass
One of the most beautiful slow movements of the Baroque, set here as a trio, which contains and implies all the harmonic content. The string parts (which are hidden and muted, but there accurately, and can be un-hidden and un-muted) can be derived from this trio.

You can play it on the organ

Strings, Voice, Cello, Bassoon, Harpsichord(2), Contrabass
Another Bach-on-Pergolesi-like augmentation of a classic score, a violin solo added to the “B section” of this renowned aria from Händel’s “Messiah”.

That’s really all that needs be said. I was helping Gertim prepare this aria for MuseScore, and fell in love with the “B Section”, which has no ins
