A version of the well-known title for youth orchestra and soprano (solo or choral). Gounod's very lyrical melody with dramatic development - congenially set over Bach's 1st Prelude from the Well-Tempered Clavier Volume 1 - is presented in various instrumental combinations. The 16th-figure from Bach's work appears in the strings, the woodwinds and the piano.

The chosen key is similar to the soprano voice in its range, it is not too heavy for a well-trained student voice or choir.

All in all it is a very beautiful piece for a festive occasion and is also suitable for a Christmas concert.
