    Bach - Praeludium et Fuga in C Major

    Here is the Bach "Praeludium et Fuga in C Major", a very different work in feel as compared to many of his more well known works. The Praeludium with its swings between toccata and choral passages and the fuga, sort of a fugue ala lite Here it is set for a brass choir of 3T,2H,2T,1E,1B

    Hi Gary:

    I think Bach would be proud of your brass choir's rendition of this work. You definitely have great control of your brass instruments and they blend so well. The lines are clear and the instruments are well balanced.

    Excellent work, Gary.

    BRAVO.........

    Thanks Jack. It is a nice piece and the organ works lend themselves to brass very nicely. Some even so for string ensemble. Please visit other piece that I have posted to this forum over the past few months and my music site.

    I agree, you certainly have the way with the brass. These arrangement are so liquid, it seems as though they were original brass works. I admire your skill with these instruments. I am myself still not ready to use brass effectively ..... Thank you.

    Hi LouiseD and David,

    Thanks for your comments on the Bach. It seems to be true that, like the organ that the music was written for, the brass instruments fall nicely into natural ranges of the voices that they follow. The insturments are brought in and out as they pass in and out of their range in the music at any moment in time.

    I play trumpet so I an sort of biased towards that family of instruments. And I have some nice opportunities to have them performed locally at Eastman School of Music.
