Catalogue Number: 05L024
Description: Telemann's big cantata cycle consists of four sets of aria-recit-aria-chorus depicting Morning, Noon, Evening and Night, each part of the day given an appropriate instrument to color this wonderful music which looks forward to Haydn's oratorio style. In 1757, Telemann was fixing to leave the Baroque behind! The ten-minute coupling is undated but, stylistically, plainly much earlier. German-English texts. Monika Mauch (soprano), Gerhild Romberger (alto), Hans Jörg Mammel (tenor), Gotthold Schwarz (bass), Basler Madrigalists, L'arpa festante; Fritz Näf.
