Bach - Motet Lobet den Herrn (Praise the Lord) BWV 230 for 8-part Trombone Ensemble
Motet Lobet den Herrn, BWV 230, for four part chorus has no known date of composition and was first published in 1821. It has a different character from the previous motets in that it was not written for a funeral and has no chorale melody, but rather a joyous Hallelujah.
Mr. Sauer has done a magnificent job transcribing all six of Bach's choral motets BWV 225-230 for 8-part Trombone Ensemble. This is a major undertaking. All are very worthy additions to the Trombone Ensemble repertoire.
