Found in:  Classical Sheet Music for String Orchestra


This famous aria pays homage to Johann Sebastian Bach and remains one of the most popular of Villa-Lobos' works, originally written for solo soprano and eight celli. Jamin Hoffman's setting for string orchestra spotlights a violin soloist¦ with the beautiful melodic line, which soars and captivates, in the manner of Bach's long non-repeating slow movements. Extraordinary programming for today's string orchestras!

Songs Include:

  • Aria (Cantilena)
