Ziptitle:Easter Oratorio [Oster Oratorium] (BWV 249), 1734
The three different versions of No. 2 (Come swiftly, and hasten) are those "alternatives" set out in the New Novello Choral score. This also includes the optional No. 11 (the Choral "The strife is o'er, the battle done", which is a transposed version of Cantata 130)
There are no text/lyrics; these Files were generated purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes (using a published piano-reduction Score), and so don't look pretty even though they should sound reasonable (though that depends very much on your hardware/software; mine is a Soundblaster AWE64 Gold). Voice-emphasised Midi Files of the whole work can be downloaded for free from my Website (above).
The Site also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
