The Collected Chorales are 117 four-part chorales composed in the 18th-century style. Melodies have been taken from the 371 Four-Part Chorales of J.S.Bach, and new alto, tenor, and bass lines have been added. The resulting new studies in the old style offer a deep modern insight into the workings of melody and harmony.
The Chorales can be played by any combination of instruments, from one-on-a-part chamber groups to full band or orchestra. Playing and singing the Chorales at various tempos and dynamics, and with varieties of instrument combinations, can greatly aid in the development of ensemble cohesiveness and intonation.
