I was cleaning up my computer since I have a few too many files, and found this old recording and transcription of JS Bach’s famous Chorale from Cantata 140, BWV 645 for guitar. It is also known as Sleepers Awake!

Most guitar transcriptions leave out the chorale melody, and only include the accompaniment from the chorale because it is so difficult to maintain both on the guitar.  I did include the chorale melody in this transcription, but I think I need to rework the recording and the transcription to really make it work. (I was a young guitarist when I made this transcription and arrangement and recording.)  But nonetheless, I’d like to offer it to you here on Christmas 2012.
