About

On 21 September 1721, Georg Philipp Telemann, the newly installed cantor of the Hanseatic City of Hamburg, directed his first regular sacred music service. At the same time, he presented the faithful with a set programme. A cantata was performed both before and after the sermon. At the conclusion of the service, an excerpt from a work to be performed later in its entirety was presented a "cliffhanger" whose continuation was undoubtedly highly anticipated by the congregation in light of the variety of music on offer. The Hamburger Ratsmusik revives this historic inaugural service here, and Simone Eckert breaks up the already extremely varied sequence of works by including four viola da gamba Fantasias to complete the twelve works begun on earlier releases.
