Bach - Chorale “Vor deinen Thron tret’ ich hiermit” (Before Thy Throne I Stand) for Brass Quintet
The Chorale “Vor deinen Thron tret’ ich hiermit” (Before Thy Throne I Stand) was published with the first edition of The Art of Fugue.
Said to have been composed on Bach's deathbed and dictated to a student, it is a fitting conclusion to his great, unfinished work.
The three lower voices weave contrapuntal lines and the Trumpets sound the Chorale melody in the top voice four times before the harmonically rich conclusion. About five minutes in length.
