Trauerode BWV 198Cantata BWV 78
- Apple Music
Two odes to death and the soul's salvation
Whatever the occasions for which they were written (a tribute to a dead queen, or a chorale cantata), the two works on this recording have one subject in common: death and the soul's salvation. Performed in 1727 in memory of the sorely mourned Christiane Eberhardine, Queen of Poland and Electress of Saxony, the Funeral Ode BWV 198 is particularly moving in its sincerity and spiritual grandeur.
This title was released for the first time in 1988.
