Deep remorse and the longing for divine redemption are two of the central topics in the cantatas of Northern German Baroque composers. Griet de Geyter and Il Gardellino have selected three exemplary works in this genre by Dieterich Buxtehude, Georg Philipp Telemann and Johann Sebastian Bach, giving special emphasis to the clearly led voice and striking expressivity of the young Belgian soprano.
The emotional climax is Bach’s cantata with obbligato oboe “Mein Herz schwimmt im Blut” BWV 199, which is based on Christ’s parable of the Pharisee and the Publican. The programme is complemented by an instrumental sonata by Buxtehude and two organ versions of the chorale “Jesu, meine Freude”, played by Leo van Doeselaar.
