By MarkA. Peters

on the finish of his moment 12 months in Leipzig, J.S. Bach composed 9 sacred cantatas to texts by way 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 missed within the Bach literature. Ziegler was once Germany's first lady poet laureate, and the e-book 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 distinct 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 used to be right here pursuing a few compositional approaches no longer universal in his different sacred cantatas, together with experimentation with the order of events inside of a cantata, with formal issues in arias and recitatives, and with using tools, in addition to cutting edge ways to Vox Christi texts and to texts facing speech and silence. A Woman's Voice in Baroque track is the 1st publication to deal intensive with problems with girls in tune relating to Bach, and one of many few complete reviews of a particular repertory of Bach's sacred cantatas. It for this reason presents an important new viewpoint on either Ziegler as poet and cantata librettist and Bach as cantata composer.
