Bach’s Cantata No. 198 is a secular work mourning the loss of Christiane Eberhardine, wife of the Elector of Saxony, and first performed in Leipzig in 1727. Dating from 1736, Cantata No. 206 celebrates the birthday of her son, Augustus III of Poland. Preceding these in tonight’s programme is an aria now attributed to Melchior Hoffmann (c.1696/7-1715) but formerly attributed to Bach himself, and probably forming part of a lost cantata composed for a funeral service.
Melchior Hoffmann (c.1679-1715)
