Georg Philipp Telemannís role as Music Director in Hamburg in the early 18th Century meant he virtually assumed responsibility for the whole of Hamburgís music life. In 1722 he began supplying no less than thirty-six Kapitšnsmusiken, each consisting of an oratorio and a serenata, in honour of the captains and colonels of the Hamburg civic guard.
This oratorio features solo singers in the roles of the allegorical figures representing Hamburgís Guardian Spirit, Liberty, Contemplation, Joy, Gratitude, Discernment, Trust, Love and Frivolity. Once again Telemannís gift for sophisticated instrumental technique is shown. Fifes and drums add unusual military colours in the serenata.
An authentic performance is given by Manfred Cordes and his Weser-Renaissance Bremen, a duo who have been acclaimed in the past for their ďpeerless, expert performancesĒ (Classics Today).
