Sleepers Wake, The Voices Are Calling from Cantata 140 for three Mixed Flutes

£15.50

  • Highly recommended

From the Publisher

Cantata 140 is one of Bach's most famous and beloved sacred cantatas. Based on the late-sixteenth-century hymn composed by Phillip Nicolai, Sleepers Wake is the subject of three of the cantata's seven movements. Originally arranged for two altos and bass flute, alternate C flute and alto parts are included as well, allowing for a performance by almost any combination of flutes. It is particularly effective when performed as a choir piece featuring the lower pitched flutes. Sleepers Wake is often associated with Christmas performances, but this well-recognized work can be enjoyed at any occasion.
