Tomorrow is the First Sunday of Advent, so, what better what way to "Wake us Up!" for our Advent pilgrimage, than J. S. Bach's famous prelude, "Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme," BWV 645, the first of the collection of Schübler Chorales?!?
This recording features the Principal 8' of the Seitenwerk, the Trompete 8' of the Hauptwerk, and the wonderful Violon 16' and Cello 8' in the Pedal.
The score is attached below as well as the title page from the original Schübler Chorales
Two more settings of this famous Advent chorale to follow!
