J S Bach

Cantata BWV 40

You can freely and lawfully download a printable score for this Work from CPDL - the Choral Public Domain Library - though it may not be exactly the same as the one used to make the Midi Files below, and it probably won't be as good as a proper paid-for engraved and printed score.

There is an excellent performance of this Work by the Netherlands Bach Society, Hans-Christoph Rademann Conductor, on YouTube starting here.

Here is a "clickable" Table of the available Midi Files for this Work.

These Midis can be played either using a conventional Midi Player, such as Chris Hills's MidiPlay or the Windows Media Player, or using the rather different Choral Music Tutor, which is a web app that plays MIDI files. Choral Music Tutor runs on any device - any Desktop PC (Windows or Mac), Tablet (Android or iPad) or Smartphone (Android or iPhone) - that can browse the internet. It is not an app that you have to download or install. There is more information about playing MIDI Files here.
