About

The two works on this disc perfectly illustrate a particular type of secular cantata, the so-called 'dramma per musica'. In such works the libretto is constructed dramatically, and the singers embody various roles, such as gods and other characters from antiquity, and allegorical figures.

Both cantatas recorded here are 'academic' cantatas, composed in honour of eminent members of the faculty at the University of Leipzig.

This disc features acclaimed British tenor Roderick Williams.
