Playing Bach Chorales is one of the best ways to improve your ensemble sound. 20 Bach Chorales for Band is a great way for your band to get their feet wet with a little Bach. The Chorales are taken from Bach’s wonderful 4 part harmonies, and arranged for Band here by Mark Irons. The arrangement is considerable in both length and scope, but is easily accessible to wide variety of ensembles from intermediate to advanced musicians. The score and parts are also labeled with their corresponding part- Soprano, Alto, Tenor, or Bass which allows for a Flex Ensemble of mixed or incomplete instrumentation. While these works will be mainly used for the the rehearsal room, they are good enough for any concert hall setting as well.
