By MarkA. Peters

on the finish of his moment 12 months 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 merely compositions to texts via a feminine poet, the works were principally neglected within the Bach literature. Ziegler used to be Germany's first girl poet laureate, and the booklet highlights her importance 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 through arguing that her special perception of the cantata as a style inspired Bach's inventive musical realizations. In contemplating Bach's settings of Ziegler's texts, Peters argues that Bach was once right here pursuing a couple of compositional approaches no longer universal in his different sacred cantatas, together with experimentation with the order of events inside a cantata, with formal issues in arias and recitatives, and with using tools, in addition to leading edge ways to Vox Christi texts and to texts facing speech and silence. A Woman's Voice in Baroque track is the 1st booklet to deal intensive with problems with ladies in track with regards to Bach, and one of many few entire reports of a particular repertory of Bach's sacred cantatas. It consequently offers an important new viewpoint on either Ziegler as poet and cantata librettist and Bach as cantata composer.
