Though it's somewhat controversial, Prof. Dr. Helga Thoene's theory regarding Bach's Six Unaccompanied Sonatas and Partitas for the violin is fascinating. Dr. Christoph Poppen and the Hilliard Ensemble have produced a stunning CD based on Dr. Thoene's theory. It's titled "Morimur" and a simple search on Google will find it if you would like to purchase it. I'm not enough of a musicologist to debate Dr. Thoene's theory, but the ethereal sounds on the CD are captivating.
I am learning the Chaconne, which is the centerpiece of the recording. It's a wonderfully challenging piece and eminently worthy of playing on its own merits. Now, however, I'm looking for the sheet music or score from which the Hilliard ensemble sings but cannot find it. I would like to perform the piece with vocals this Good Friday. Can anyone help me? Otherwise we have some work to do, adapting the applicable chorales to the Chaconne.
