About

This  is the first volume of a series on CPO dedicated to the marvellous discoveries of Telemann’s cantatas.
 
Throughout his life Telemann collaborated with poets who prepared sacred texts for him, usually to be set as annual cycles for the church year. This practice enabled him to design each of his annual cycles, as a rule consisting of seventy-two cantatas for each Sunday and feast day, on the basis of a unique overall idea.
 
These annual cycles not only lend expression to the artistic program and ideas of one of the most important sacred music composers of the eighteenth century but also document his deep religiosity. 
 
The Rhenische Kantorei and Das Kleine Konzert deliver expertly crafted, stylish performances that either rival or better the earlier ones and offer long-awaited CD premieres.” Classics Today on 999 943-2
