About

This is the fourth CD in the first complete recording of the 72 cantatas from Georg Philipp Telemann’s collection Harmonischer Gottes‐Dienst, published in Hamburg in 1726 – the first complete set of cantatas for the liturgical year to appear in print.

The cantatas are designated for voice, an obbligato instrument (recorder, violin, transverse flute or oboe) and basso continuo, and generally take the form of two da capo arias with an intervening recitative. Although intended for worship, both public and private, Telemann’s cantatas are a masterly blend of tunefulness with skilled counterpoint and vocal and instrumental virtuosity.

Bergen Barokk:
- Franz Vitzhum, counter‐tenor
- Peter Holtslag, transverse flute
- Hans Knut Sveen, harpsichord and organ
- Markku Luolajan‐Mikkola, Baroque cello and viol

Reviews of previous releases:
an incredibly good start to what looks to be a promising series… Telemann fans are going to have to make a lot of room on their record shelves’ - All Music Guide

After so much enjoying Bergen Barokk’s first disc for Toccata Classics I am delighted to see this group embarking on this new project…These are delightful works.’ - Classical Source

these recordings are a real delight and provide a welcome introduction to an under-represented aspect of Telemann’s music’ - Music Web International

If I were giving an award for Baroque disc of the year, this one [Vol 2] would win it. Urgently recommended.’ - Fanfare
