Bach: Ascension Day Oratorio BWV 11

Stuttgart, 2007. 22 x 32 cm, viii, 34 pp. 4-color facsimile of the elegant autograph score, reproduced in the original loose bi-folio format. The Ascension Day Oratorio's festive orchestration calls for solo SATB, SATB chorus, 3 trumpets, timpani, flutes, oboes, violins, viola, & bc. Although it was first performed on May 19, 1735 for Ascension Day, according to indications in the autograph it is actually a copy of the score of the composer's inauguration piece of 1732 (or name-day cantata of 1733) with new underlayed text. The work bears striking similarities with the Christmas Oratorio (BWV 248), completed only six months earlier. Introduction in Ger-Eng-Fr. Issued on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bachhaus Eisenach Museum of the Neue Bachgesellschaft. Portfolio. $106
