Bach Cello Suite G Major Prelude for Marimba

I have a couple of students who have played this famous cello piece and one of them asked if I had it in treble clef, as opposed to the original which is in bass clef. I thought it would be an easy thing to find but it turns out it wasn’t. There are flute and guitar versions but they’ve both been transposed from the original G major.

I could have made my student figure out the bass clef (which is always good to know) but in the meantime I agreed that somewhere on the interwebs there should be a simple transcription for marimba so I jumped into Sibelius and cranked it out. The version below is a PDF.
