Description

Vocal score and performance material available for sale.

Lavishly scored oratorio of a festive nature.

Based on the New Bach Edition.

Bilingual foreword by Andreas Glöckner (Ger/Eng).

Bachcomposed his oratorio for the Feast of the Ascension in Leipzig in 1735. Though this work has the duration of a cantata, the choice of text places it among the oratorios. It combines the biblical account of the Ascension withchorales and free madrigal poems. As in other works which were composed during this same year (e.g. the Christmas Oratorio), Bach reveals a special fondness for colourful orchestration, with two Flutes, two Oboes,threeTrumpets, Timpani and Strings, creating a splendid Baroque sound with a strikingly festive character.

This edition is based on the thoroughly researched musical text from the New Bach Edition.
