This is another arrangement I wrote for the WSaxQ (www.wsaxq.com), based on J. S. Bach's fantasia on the hymn tune "Ein Feste Burg" (A Mighty Fortress). The work, BWV 720, originally set for organ, here is transcribed for saxophone SATB quartet. I selected the JABB saxes with a less "jazzy" quality for this rendering.
Part of the challange in this work was transcribing the voices in such a way as to keep them in their playable range. At one point the alto sax plays in close harmony with the soprano sax at the dizzy altitude of F# an octave above the treble staff . No problem for the professionals I am told.
The score and this playback was produced using Finale 2006 with only the addition of the vibrato control marks added to it. I used the following from the JABB library for this rendering;
JABB: Soprano Sax 2, Alto Sax 1, Tenor Sax 1 and Baritone Sax 2
