Johann Sebastian Bach

Born: 1685. Died: 1750. Lived in: Germany

Born into a musical family, Bach received his earliest instruction from his father. After his father's death in 1695, Bach moved to Ohrdruf, where he lived and studied organ with his older brother Johann Christoph. He also received an education at schools in Eisenach, Ohrdruf, and Luneburg. Bach's first permanent positions were as organist in Arnstadt (1703-1707) and Muhlhausen (1707-1708). During these years, he performed, composed taught, and developed an interest in organ building. From 1708-1717 he was employed by Duke Wilhelm Ernst of Weimar, first as court organist, and after 1714, as concertmaster. During this period, he composed many of his best organ compositions; in his capacity as concertmaster, he was also expected to produce a cantata each month. In Weimar, Bach's style was influenced by his study of numerous Italian compositions (especially Vivaldi concertos).

Gordon Jones : Bach's Choral Music - Unlocking the Masters Series, No. 20

J.S. Bach - A Listener's Guide to His Choral Music introduces the general listener to a genre of music that is mistakenly supposed to be "difficult." A vivid biographical sketch of Bach's life and times provides the necessary background. The book then takes on the question "What is a cantata?" and guides the listener systematically through fugue, recitative, and aria. The author chooses 30 of Bach's 200 church cantatas that are especially likely to be performed live, and explores them in detail. Studies of the two great oratorios, the "St John Passion" and the "St. Matthew Passion," follow, together with a detailed analysis of what Bach himself probably thought to be his finest work, the "Mass in B Minor." The book is accompanied by a 75-minute CD featuring complete tracks from five of the finest cantatas, as well as several tracks from the two Passions, the Mass, and "Magnifcat."

Johan Sebastian Bach : J.S. Bach: Jesu, Priceless Treasure (Vocal Score) : Solo : Vocal Score : 888680053345 : 14017091

Johan Sebastian Bach : J.S. Bach: Jesu, Priceless Treasure (Vocal Score)

Jesu, Priceless Treasure is one of very few Bach motets which are in five parts. Of all of Bach's motets it is the longest, the most varied, and has the greatest emotional range. It is founded on the hymn Jesu, Meine Freude by Johannes Franck, and the melody which Bach has used as the main feature of this motet is the one set to Franck's hymn by Johann Cruger, and appeared first in his Praxis Pietatis Melica. The motet seems to have been written for the funeral of Frau Reese in 1723. This piece for SSATB voices can be sung unaccompanied or with the Piano Accompaniment provided in this edition.

Ward Swingle : Johann Sebastian Bach Vol 1 : Mixed 5-8 Parts : Sheet Music Collection : VJ1299

Ward Swingle : Johann Sebastian Bach Vol 1

"Gigue (Suite in C Major)" is a movement from one of Bach's unaccompanied Cello sonatas, arranged here for tenor and bass. It has a fast 3/4 jazz feeling, with some tricky dove-tailing between the voices, the object being to make it sound like on instrument. The Swingle Singers have often used this "Organ Fugue BMV 578" as a concert opener. The challenge in singing without a rhythm section is to make the piece swing without the help of the instruments.The "Bourree" has probably been the most widely performed of all Ward Swingle arrangements. This is an a cappella version using three different styles: child-like "la-la-la's," gently swinging "oo" sounds and rather brassy "ah" sounds.

Largo : 2-Part : Donald E. Bartle : Sheet Music : 08763597 : 728215023415

Donald E. Bartle : Largo

For a more advanced children's choir, this piece, is most appropriate as a processional before a concert. It would also be effective if choreographed with members of the choir being actively involved, or with dancers. The choir must strive for simplicity, serenity and a pure singing legato line at all times. - Jean Ashworth Bartle
