Kantate BWV 104: "Du Hirte Israel, höre"
The three cantatas heard in this concert belong to the beginnings of Johannes Sebastian Bach in Leipzig (from 1723). His new duties as Thomaskantor included the weekly performance of cantatas for Sunday and festive services; for this purpose, about 60 cantatas were needed per church year. Bach not only provided the performances, but he also composed the cantatas himself. Within two years he wrote two complete volumes, each with 60 cantatas, and a third volume he completed in 1727. And two more cantata cycles are attested, but unfortunately not preserved. Only the sheer number of cantatas in this unique musical quality explains the outstanding position that Bach occupies as a creative genius even in comparison with other outstanding composers of music history.
The cantatas "Du Hirte Israel, höre" (BWV 104) and "Wer da gläubet und getauft wird" (BWV 37) belong to the first Leipzig cantata year and were first performed in the spring of 1724 (shortly after the premiere of the "St. John Passion"). «Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan» (BWV 98) is attributed to the third cantata cycle, which was first heard in November 1726.Pfäfers
