The Scherzi melodichi of 1734 contain seven suites named after the days of the week. The programmatic idea, which is stated on the cover sheet and in the foreword, is to provide music for every day, to entertain the visitors of Bad Pyrmont (in today’s Lower Saxony), back then one of Europe’s most popular spas.

The structure of the Fortsetzung des Harmonischen Gottesdienstes (1731/32) also follows a calendrical principle.

The young Ensemble Delirio have put a programme together which features each day of the week in at least one of the compositions.

Sunday: Domenica - Scherzi Melodichi / Ach Not! Wenn Gottes Hand
Monday: Lunedi - Scherzi Melodichi / Meine Seel' erhebt den Herrn
Tuesday: Martedi - Scherzi Melodichi
Wednesday: Mercordi - Scherzi Melodichi
Thursday: Ach ewigs Wort!
Friday: Venerdi - Scherzi Melodichi
Saturday: Sabbato - Scherzi Melodichi
