Bach A1 Peters, Mark A.,, PB Ashgate PP Aldershot, Hampshire, England; Burlington, VT YR 2008 SN 9780754658108 0754658104 AB "At the end of his second year in Leipzig, J.S. Bach composed nine sacred cantatas to texts by Leipzig poet Mariane von Ziegler (1695-1760). Despite the fact that these cantatas are Bach's only compositions to texts by a female poet, the works have been Largely ignored in the Bach literature." "A Woman s Voice in Baroque Music is the first book to deal in depth with issues of women in music in relation to Bach, and one of the few comprehensive studies of a specific repertory of Bach's sacred cantatas. It therefore provides a significant new perspective on both Ziegler as poet and cantata librettist and Bach as cantata composer."--Jacket.
