This instrumental arrangement of the 11 Chorales of the St John Passion is a transcription from the original and it keeps the keys as they appear in the complete work,
with numbers indicating where they appear in the work. This will enable them to be included in a full performance of the Passion or as musical interludes for a spoken recital of the Passion.

There is also a version available for 3 flutes and alto flute

However, these changes in key can create a somewhat startling result if all the chorales are played all at once,
so they should best be played as separate items rather than as a continuous sequence in their own right.


I have replaced the fermatas, apart from those at the end of each chorale, with pauses (commas) since modern and romantic interpretations of fermatas can be excessively long.
The dynamics are merely suggestions.

The pdf file contains score and parts.
The sound sample is an electronic preview.
