J. S. Bach (1685-1750) • G. P. Telemann (1681-1767) • M. Hoffmann (c. 1679-1715) Sacred Cantatas for Alto and for Tenor
False attributions have not been unusual in the history of music. Some of these may be ascribed to the commercial sense of publishers, anxious to market their wares. This, however, is less likely to be the case in works of the late baroque period, where incorrect attributions may be put down to a general similarity of current musical language and practice, and, in the present case, to the fact that Bach, like others in his position, would copy out works that he admired or for which he had a use in the course of his employment. The present recording includes two solo sacred cantatas by Bach, one now correctly ascribed to his close contemporary Telemann, and another conjecturally to Melchior Hoffmann.
