Cellowise: J.S. Bach "Ruht Wohl" (St. John Passion BWV 245)

Books | Cello, Piano Accompaniment

Catalogue No: SP1129
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
"Ruht Wohl" is the final Chorus from the St. John Passion and takes the form of a Da Capo Aria with opening ritornello.

This beautiful music, cri de coeur for the human heart and spirit, comes at a dark point in the Passion story yet there is constant play of light and colour hinting at the hope and renewal of Easter. Sweeping melodic lines are a gift for cello and the arrangement retains all counterpoint, dramatic episode, formal symmetry of the original. Technically accessible to Grade 6 & 7 students, "Ruht Wohl" makes an impressive concert item for Grade 8 and above.
