Johann Sebastian Bach’s 200 chorales are a testament to this composer’s greatness. The power of his music is undiminished after more than 300 years. Nothing sounds more natural than performing these chorales with a cello ensemble. The cello, with its warm tonal quality and more than 4 octave range has the ability to directly take over the choir's four voices: soprano, alto, tenor and bass. These arrangements for cello ensemble are written with exactly the same pitches as the choir’s original voices. 

-Hans Erik Deckert

This collection of five chorales consists of the following works:
  1. Sei gegrüsset, Jesu gütig
  2. Jesu, meine Freude
  3. Von Himmel hoch
  4. Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern
  5. Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme
