This is the second volume of the first complete recording of the 72 cantatas from Harmonischer Gottes‐Dienst, published in Hamburg in 1726.

These cantatas – designed for voice, an obbligato instrument (recorder, violin, transverse flute or oboe) and basso continuo, in the form of two da capo arias with an intervening recitative – are a masterly blend of tunefulness with skilled counterpoint and vocal/instrumental virtuosity.

Bergen Barokk, established in 1994 is one of Norway’s leading early‐music ensembles.

Reviews of Harmonische Gottes-Dienst Vol.1:
"One can hardly think of a large Baroque collection of sacred music that needs recording worse than this […] This is an incredibly good start to what looks to be a promising series, and if subsequent volumes maintain this level of inspiration and dedication, then Telemann fans are going to have to make a lot of room on their record shelves." - Dave Lewis, All Music Guide
