Synopsis

In this pioneering work of systematic research, Meyer demonstrates in detail how Bach quoted and alluded to the text of Luther's German Bible in his liturgical libretti. Compiled with the interests of both scholar and performer in mind, this volume supplements the fundamental understanding of the liturgical functions of these cantatas of Bach, as well as providing a resource for further theological, musical, and linguistic study.
