The three cantatas brought together here are from Telemann’s last printed annual cycle, which was published in Hermsdorf (near Hirschberg), Silesia, in 1749. Each cantata has a title page indicating the particular Sunday, registering the ensemble parts under it, and displaying a decorative figure modelled on a putto as an ornament on the lower half of the page. Since the putto was also understood as an angel, the cycle came to be known as the ‘Engel-Jahrgang’ (Angel Cycle). In addition, the title contains a pithy motto that seems to be referring to Telemann: ‘You glorify the sweet harmony of the art of music and sanctify it’. As in his other annual cycles issued in printed form, the compositions were presented in Hamburg churches prior to their publication or along with it. These are joyful works of dance and verve to which Telemann supplied additional splendour in many movements through the use of trumpets.
