Bach and Before for Band - Book 2

by David Newell




Bach and Before for Band, Book 2 is the long -awaited continuation of David Newell’s popular, flexibly-scored series of four-part chorales. By starting in unison and adding parts in any combination of instruments, you can optimize your warm-up time and refine students’ tone production, balance, blend, intonation, and musical understanding.

Bach and Before for Band, Book 2 is written at a more advanced level than Book One. The chorales are rhythmically more complex, with multiple syncopations within and across barlines. Suspensions are plentiful. Many of the harmonizations are rich in chromaticism, offering ample opportunities to tune a variety of different chords.

Book One of the series was purposely written in the most common band keys.The key signature choices in Book Two have been expanded, with a combination of both major and minor tonalities in the following concert key signatures:

Chorales 1-4: One Flat
Chorales 5-8: Two Flats
Chorales 9-12: Three Flats
Chorales 13-15: Four Flats
Chorales 16-18: No Sharps/No Flats
Chorales 19 and 20: One Sharp
Chorales 21 and 22: Two Sharps
* Chorale 23: Three Sharps
* Chorale 24: Four Sharps

Bach and Before for Band, Books 1 and 2 are a must for improving intonation and playing expressively - two important keys to superior performance!

Title

O Lamm Gottes, unschuldig

Hilf, Gott, daß mir’s gelinge

Erstanden ist der heil’ge Christ

Das alte Jahr vergangen ist

Straf' Es spricht der unwesen Mund

Es stehn vor Gottes Throne

Nun ruhen alle Wälder

Jesu, der du meine Seele

Straf mich nicht in deinem Zorn

Da der Herr Christ zu Tische saß

Wenn ich in Angst und Not

Jesu Leiden, Pein und Tod

In dich hab ich gehoffet, Herr

Nun ruhen alle Wälder

Ein Lämmlein geht und trägt die Schuld

Von Gott will ich nicht lassen

Allein zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ

Weltlich’ Ehr’ und zeitlich Gut

Du großer Schmerzensmann

Ich ruf’ zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ

Hvad ljus öfver griften!

Christum wir sollen loben schon

Ave Vera Virginitas

O wie selig seid ihr doch, ihr Frommen
