The Baroque Period dates from approximately 1600 to 1750. This period saw the creation of tonality which implies the use of a particular key. Musicians were expected to be accomplished improvisers.

J.S. Bach - Contrapunctus IV

J. S. Bach .... that's about all that need to be said. Contrapunctus IV from the 'Art of the Fugue' is extra DE--Lightful.  Even a slow tempo it still satisifies and yields garlands of harmonic beauty which will reward the players for their efforts. 

This works itseelf out very well for SATGb voicing with only minor changes in the tenor part. I have supplied an altered F-bass part which works. 

This is offered as a free download. ENJOY.

O Lamb of God Most Holy-Pachelbel

Johann Pachelbel is the composer of this wonderful 'Choralvorspiel' This transcription tries to be faithful to Pachelbel's intent. The full statement of the choral melody put in the pedals but on a Nachthorn 2' & Cornett 2'. So…. don't be surprised when the melody appears on the sopranino. Performed in a really live hall this piece would be thrilling!
