Description: The middle class of the early Enlightenment sought moral education and ethical improvement deriving from human nature and reason as part of its never-ending quest for earthly happiness. With wit and charm in his Moral Cantatas of 1735, Telemann set to music a poetic document conveying the spirit of this Enlightenment period. German-English texts.
