    Bach - Schmucke dich for CMB Saxophone Quartet

    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.

    Hi Gary,

    I enjoyed listening to this. It gives a realistic portrayal of what a live performance might sound like.

    You might want to check the spelling of the title though. I think it is "Schmüke dich". [edit.. OP corrected spelling]

    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"...

    David,

    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.

    Another favorite of mine, Gary; and a strong
    rendering, too. Can't wait to hear this one live,
    though -- the tender quality of it is undoubtedly
    going to be quite poignant.

    Again, my compliments on all these sax
    arrangements, my friend. Wonderful work, and
    a highly worthwhile expansion of the literature
    available to them.

    My best,

    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.
