Sacred Choral Music by J. S. Bach (1685-1750)

Cantata 4 "Christ lag in Todesbanden" (BWV 4)

Sequenced and arranged by J. R. Jennings

Cantata 4 is believed to have been composed rather early, but may have been been revised later at Leipzig (Herz, 1967). These files contain a full score including all vocal and instrumental parts. A realization of the basso continuo* part has been written out in modern musical notation. Software to read NWC scores can be downloaded free of charge.
