Wachet Auf is one of Papa Bach's most enduring melodic creations. It is often used for Easter, and other celebratory occasions. Our piano setting is useful for any locale that does not have access to a full organ.
Octave bass throughout gives the low end plenty of gravitas. The setting in the treble uses 4ths and 5ths, well-placed, to imitate the overtones of various organ stops, through the simple addition of the pipe-like interval itself.
Also, these added tones have been made ultra-pianistic, for both richness and ease.
A Grand Combination! Full-length, original key. Pedal throughout for the most salutory and ringing effect. MBB.
