This Magnicant (in E Minor) is from Bach's copy and
arrangement of Caldara's Magnificat in C Major, BNB
I/C/1 and BWV 1082 (early 1740s). The BNB I/C/1 refers
to Bach's copy of a Magnificat in C major (scores) by
Antonio Caldara.Bach started to copy Caldara's
Magnificat on 31 May 1740 and completed his manuscript,
later classified as D-B Mus. ms. 2755, Fascicle 1, in
1742. Bach's manuscript also contained a reworked
version (i.e., expanded with two upper voices) of the
"Suscepit Israel" movement in E minor: Bach's
arrangement of that movement is known as BWV 1082.
Although originally written for Chorus (SAATB) and
Baroque Orchestra, I created this Arrangement of the
Magnificat in C Major (BWV 1082) for Winds (Flute, Oboe
& Bassoon) & Strings (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
