Originally published in Bach Transcriptions for Organ, this dignified Sarabande taken from BWV 812 is rich in expressive dissonances. An ancient Spanish dance, the Sarabande was the usual slow movement of the four dances which formed the core of the Baroque Suite, and should be played with a slow tempo and intense legato.
