Catalogue Number: 03T013
Reference: CHR 77421
Format: CD reissue
Description: Dating from around 1717, this is one of those short-recit-short-aria/chorus passion settings we’ve seen from Telemann among others (here there are 50 numbers in 63 minutes) but this one stands out for apparently having been performed by Bach as well as having stylistic traits that foreshadow elements in J.S.’s later Passion settings. German-English texts. Parthenia vocal, Parthenia baroque; Christian Brembeck. Original 1993 release.
