I hope you tried your hand yesterday at transposing an excerpt from the Invention No. 1 in C major, BWV 772 by Bach. Today let's try something really interesting - transposing an entire four-part harmonization of the chorale "Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme" by Bach.
Here is the score. Print it out, listen to the MIDI file. Then practice playing it in a slow tempo a few times. When this will become easy, transpose it to E major - that's a half step up or a minor second up.
Notice that the notes will be the same but the key signature will have to be with 4 sharps (F#, C#, G# and D#). All additional flats will become naturals and all additional naturals will become sharps.
Enjoy your practice and when you are done, post your time to comments.
