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 merely compositions to texts by means of a feminine poet, the works were mostly overlooked within the Bach literature. Ziegler was once Germany's first woman 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 certain 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 the following pursuing a few compositional strategies no longer universal in his different sacred cantatas, together with experimentation with the order of activities inside of a cantata, with formal concerns in arias and recitatives, and with using tools, in addition to leading edge methods to Vox Christi texts and to texts facing speech and silence. A Woman's Voice in Baroque song is the 1st booklet to deal intensive with problems with girls in track with regards to Bach, and one of many few entire experiences of a selected repertory of Bach's sacred cantatas. It as a result offers an important new standpoint on either Ziegler as poet and cantata librettist and Bach as cantata composer.
