Catalogue Number: 07W017
Reference: 555 348-2
Description: Graupner’s Passion Cycle of 1741 concludes with the highly expressive cantata for Laetare Sunday. Here two things stand out: the decision in favor of two duets (instead of two arias) and the instrumentation of the cantata as a whole. The blend of instrumental color renders audible what is a direct musical realization of the textual content. German-English texts. Ex Tempore Soloists Ensemble, Mannheim Hofkapelle Baroque Orchestra; Florian Heyerick.
