Vocal Score-First Urtext edition based on Georg Philipp Telemann Musical Works.An attractive addition to the repertoire with a view to the Telemann Year 2017.Bilingual Foreword (Ger/Eng).Uncluttered idiomatic Piano reduction.Full score and parts (BA5897) and vocal score (BA5897-90) available for sale.Chorale settings form a central part of Telemann s uvre. His 1754 setting of the church hymn Christus Der Ist Mein Leben based on Melchoir Vulpius melody from the Hamburg Hymnal is especially well-suited to display his mastery in depicting the words of the chorale. The so-called Ausfüllungsbass (a vocal bass added tothe principal bass in tutti passages) was probably necessitated by the acoustical properties of Hamburg s churches.This is the first Urtext edition of this highly successful chorale setting which is based on Georg Philipp Telemann Musical Works. The score contains a realisation of the continuo part.
