J.S. Bach composed the organ work "Schmucke dich o liebe Seele" (Deck Thyself, My Soul with Gladness) as one work in a set known as the Eighteen 'Leipzig' Chorale Preludes (BWV654). This work has the feeling of contemplation but also ending in a solid resolution of faith in what is yet to come.
Here it is rendered using Finale 2008 and the solo SATB saxophones of the CMB library.

You might want to check the spelling of the title though. I think it is "Schmüke dich", not "Schuke". I am not 100% sure, but a Google search of the title gives 42 results for your version, and 95,000 results for "Schmüke"...
Glad that you enjoyed it.
Yes I did drop the 'm' and since I pasted the title in to the description I repeated the error. At least it is consistant I tried to correct the title bt it is unclear if it will work.
Thanks for stopping by to hear it. I agree that it is an excellent example of an organ work that adapts so nicely to wind instruments. I would love to hear it live. The WSAXQ group would make it a most memorable event.
