A rather simple piece in itself, Johann Sebastian Bach’s chorale prelude on the hymn tune “Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme” is the first in the set of Bach’s Schübler Chorales (BWV 645), a collection of six chorale preludes published in 1747 by Johann Georg Schübler. How fortunate are we that Ottorino Respighi created an orchestration of this chorale prelude (in addition to two others) and published them in a collection, "Tre Corali di Johann Sebastian Bach." This arrangement for flute choir by Matt Johnston is based on that orchestration. Please note, the product for sale here is the arrangement for Standard Flute Choir (see instrumentation below). Additionally, the parts are compatible with the editions for Low Flute Choir and Clarinet Choir.
