By MarkA. Peters

on the finish of his moment yr in Leipzig, J.S. Bach composed 9 sacred cantatas to texts by means of Leipzig poet Mariane von Ziegler (1695-1760). although those cantatas are Bach's in basic terms compositions to texts via a feminine poet, the works were mostly neglected within the Bach literature. Ziegler used to be Germany's first girl poet laureate, and the e-book highlights her value in early eighteenth-century Germany and her dedication to advancing women's rights of self-expression. Peters enriches and enlivens the account with extracts from Ziegler's 4 released volumes of poetry and prose, and analyses her method of cantata textual content composition by means of arguing that her specific notion of the cantata as a style inspired Bach's artistic musical realizations. In contemplating Bach's settings of Ziegler's texts, Peters argues that Bach was once right here pursuing a couple of compositional strategies now not universal in his different sacred cantatas, together with experimentation with the order of hobbies inside a cantata, with formal concerns in arias and recitatives, and with using tools, in addition to cutting edge methods to Vox Christi texts and to texts facing speech and silence. A Woman's Voice in Baroque track is the 1st publication to deal extensive with problems with ladies in track with regards to Bach, and one of many few complete stories of a particular repertory of Bach's sacred cantatas. It as a result presents an important new standpoint on either Ziegler as poet and cantata librettist and Bach as cantata composer.
