Bach, Johann Sebastian
Now my soul exalts the Lord BWV 10
Cantata for the Feast of Visitation B. V. M.
With his cantata “Meine Seel erhebt den Herren” which Bach composed for the Visitation of Mary (2 July), he created a Magnificat setting of a different kind: The German text source is a combination of biblical text and a free interpretation, the basis being the Marian hymn of praise from the Gospel according to Luke. The 9th psalm tone acts as the chorale melody and becomes a recurring musical theme.
With a small scoring of one trumpet (which if need be can be omitted), two oboes, strings and basso continuo along with four soloists and choir, Bach succeeds in writing a festive music of 20-25 minutes.
This performing edition is based on the Urtext of the “New Bach Edition”.
