Jesus, Priceless Treasure

(Click the title to view and hear online)


This work by J.S.Bach is reputed to be one of the best-known chorales from the Baroque era. This arrangement has been set for changing voices (SACB) or an adult choir (SSAB) with a minimum number of men. 

The text has been altered to reflect current usage; however, if the original version is desirable, one may change four words in the composition and walk back into the 16th century. 

Baroque chorales (the forerunner to the Protestant hymns) can be highly suitable for young singers learning to sing in four-part harmony.
