It depends how far you want to go...
When you put your leg into the J.S. Bach field, you enter very deep
waters. You mentioned 'The Wise Virgins' by William Walton, but there
are endless of many other composers, who arranged Bach's works and/or
composed freely upon them - Liszt and Busoni are only the beginning of
a very long list.
And what about the Chorale Melodies (CM)? Bach based many movements of
his vocal works and many organ works on CM's. These CM's had been
composed by numerous composers, some of them can be named, other remain
anonymous. Hundreds of composers, before and after Bach, up to our days
based their works (or movements from them) on CM's.
Thomas Braatz and I are working on a challenging project of building
a database of all the CM's used in Bach's vocal works. So far we have
covered some dozens (out of some hundreds). See list at:
Each CM page includes, among other things, works of other composers based
on the same CM. Each composer page includes, besides his bio, list of
CM's used in his works. More about this project, see:
As an example, please take a look at the CM page of 'Es ist genug' by
Johan Rudolf Ahle: http://www.bach-cantatas.com/CM/Es-ist-genug.htm
This one is interesting, because many 20th century composers, starting
with Alban Berg with his Violin Concerto, based their works (or part of
them) on this CM. The list includes: Robert Moevs, Kenneth Leighton,
Edison Densov, Sten Hanson, David Del Tredici, Dieter Kaufmann, Sven-David
Sandstrom, and Magnus Lindberg.
