    Bach - Fuga sopra il Magnificat

    The Bach work for organ, "Fuga sopra il Magnificat" is based on St. Luke's Gospel, Chapter 1, 46-47. "My soul doth magnify the Lord". It is a freely fugal piece full of invention and stimulating rhythms with wonderful harmonic twists and turns.

    To date I have set it for Brass Sextet, Trombone Quintet and Low Brass Quintet for several groups at the Eastman School of Music.

    Here I have created mp3 output using Finale and the GPO for;

    Brass Sextet (3T,1H,1T,1B)

    Nice job on these, as always, Gary.

    The brass sextet especially is a fine adaptation.

    My best,

    Gary,
    Very enjoyable listen. Both your rendering and this wonderful Fugue. When are you going to get around to The Art of Fugue, lol.

    Never look at the trombones. It only encourages them. Richard Strauss

    David,

    Thanks so much for your gracious comments on my music.

    Bill,

    The Art Of Fugue would be a great challange to do. I am not sure if it would work for brass, maybe strings and winds would work however. Heck, I'm still trying to find someone brave enough to perform my English Suite #5 transcription!!
