If Thou Be Near

Bist du bei mir
Found in J.S. Bach’s Notebook for Anna Magdelena Bach
Arranged by Carrie Lane Gruselle
Grade: 2.5



This treasured Baroque aria provides young string players with an opportunity to develop beautiful tone, vibrato and intonation in the key of B-flat. Solemn and stately, the melodic phrases are shared between the upper strings, while the cello and bass experience the responsibility of the basso continuo, making each note a pearl of musical beauty while setting the foundation for the harmonies in the inner voices. (2:45)
