About Bach Series arranged by Alfred Reed

Masterful settings for concert band by the venerable Alfred Reed, these works have been scored to achieve richness and beauty without detracting from the textural construction created by Bach himself. Marvelous educational and program material!

    As usual, Alfred Reed produces a brilliant transcription. I am always looking for good arrangements for my band at this level and this is one.
