This is my first composition and I don't know much about piano so all feedback is greatly appreciated. Also, when the tempo switches to 40bpm, the marking is a dotted quarter note = 40.

Chorus: "Wenn es meines Gottes Wille" (BWV 161 No 5) for Winds & Strings

Komm, du süße Todesstunde (Come, o sweet hour of death), BWV 161, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed it in Weimar for the 16th Sunday after Trinity and first performed it on 6 October 1715.

On 2 March 1714 Bach was appointed concertmaster of the Weimar court capelle of the co-reigning dukes Wilhelm Ernst and Ernst August of Saxe-Weimar. As concertmaster, he assumed the principal responsibility for composing new works, specifically cantatas for the Schlosskirche (palace church), on a monthly schedule, aiming at a complete annual cycle within four years. Bach wrote the cantata in 1715 for the 16th Sunday after Trinity. According to the musicologist Alfred Dürr and other sources it was first performed on 6 October 1715. The text for this and other cantatas of 1715 was written by Salomon Franck, published in Evangelisches Andachts-Opffer in 1715. The prescribed readings for the Sunday were from the Epistle to the Ephesians, praying for the strengthening of faith in the congregation of Ephesus (Ephesians 3:13--21), and from the Gospel of Luke, the raising from the dead of the Young man from Nain (Luke 7:11--17). In Bach's time the story pointed immediately at the resurrection of the dead, expressed in words of desire to die soon. The closing chorale is the fourth verse of Christoph Knoll's "Herzlich tut mich verlangen" (1611).

The first performance is dated as likely to have been 27 September 1716 by the publisher Carus-Verlag and others. The cantata was performed again in Leipzig, also for the feast of the Purification of Mary on 2 February.

The Phrygian chorale melody is the musical theme of the cantata, appearing in movement 1 both in its original form and also in the alto line derived from it. The themes of both other arias (3 and 5) are also derived from the same melody, uniting the music of the cantata. The melody appears five times in chorales of Bach's St Matthew Passion.

The tenor recitative (2) ends in an arioso when the words paraphrase a Bible line of Phil 1:23, "Ich habe Lust abzuscheiden und bei Christo zu sein" (I desire to pasture soon with Christ. I desire to depart from this world). The alto recitative (4) is accompanied by all instruments, creating the images of sleep (in a downward movement, ending in long notes), the waking up (in fast movement upwards), and funeral bells in the recorders and pizzicato of the strings. Movement 5, marked aria by Franck, is set for four parts by Bach, using homophony and like a song. The first part is not repeated da capo, according to the last words "Dieses sei mein letztes Wort" (May this be my last word). The closing chorale is illuminated by a fifth part of the two recorders playing in unison a lively counterpoint.

Although the cantata was originally scored for alto and tenor soloists, a four-part choir, two recorders, two violins, viola, and basso continuo, I created this arrangement for Winds (2 Flutes, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, French Horn & Bassoon) & Strings (2 Violins, Viola & Cello) and it is best played using the "GeneralUser GS.sf2" Soundfont by S. Christian Collins Software (http://www.schristiancollins.com/generaluser.php).

Chorale: "Christus, der ist mein Leben" (BWV 95 No 1) for Brass & Strings

Christus, der ist mein Leben (Christ, he is my life), BWV 95, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed it in Leipzig for the 16th Sunday after Trinity and first performed it on 12 September 1723.

Bach wrote the cantata in his first year Bach in Leipzig for the 16th Sunday after Trinity and first performed it on 12 September 1723. The prescribed readings for the Sunday were from the Epistle to the Ephesians, praying for the strengthening of faith in the congregation of Ephesus (Ephesians 3:13–21), and from the Gospel of Luke, the raising from the dead of the Young man from Nain (Luke 7:11–17). In Bach's time the story pointed immediately at the resurrection of the dead, expressed as a desire to die soon. As Salomon Franck expressed in his text for cantata Komm, du süße Todesstunde, BWV 161, composed in Weimar in 1715, the unknown poet concentrates on a desire to die, in hope to be raised like the young man from Nain. The poet includes four stanzas from four different chorales. Two stanzas from chorales are already presented in the first movement, "Christus, der ist mein Leben" (Jena 1609) and Martin Luther's "Mit Fried und Freud ich fahr dahin" (1524), a paraphrase of the canticle Nunc dimittis. Movement 3 is Valerius Herberger's "Valet will ich dir geben", and the closing chorale is the fourth stanza of Nikolaus Herman's "Wenn mein Stündlein vorhanden ist".

A week before, Bach had included three stanzas from a chorale in Warum betrübst du dich, mein Herz, BWV 138. In this cantata he includes four stanzas from four different funeral hymns. The first three movements combine three of them, first stanzas throughout. The first chorale on a melody by Melchior Vulpius is embedded in a concerto of oboes and strings in syncopated motifs in parallels of thirds and sixths. The melody in the soprano is enforced by the horn. The line "Sterben ist mein Gewinn" (Death is my reward) is slower than the others, in a tradition observed already by Johann Hermann Schein. The recitative alternates between secco and accompagnato, with the same accompanying motifs as in the chorale. The second chorale on Luther's melody is graced by an independent violin part, and every line is preceded by an entry of the horn. A secco recitative leads to the third chorale, which is sung by the soprano alone like an aria, accompanied for the first line only by the continuo, but for the rest of the text by the oboes, playing an obbligato melody in unison.

The only aria of the cantata is dominated by the oboes and accompanied by pizzicato in the strings which symbolizes funerary bells. The closing chorale is again enriched by a soaring additional violin part.

Although originally scored for three vocal soloists (soprano, tenor and bass), a four-part choir, horn, two oboe d'amore, two violins, viola, violoncello piccolo and basso continuo, I created this arrangement for Brass Quartet (Bb Trumpet, Flugelhorn, French Horn & F Tuba) & Strings (2 Violins, Viola & Cello) and it is best played using the "GeneralUser GS.sf2" Soundfont by S.
