The Complete Church and Secular Cantatas
This volume contains parallel texts and translations of all Bach's church and secular cantatas that have come down to us complete. They have been translated into an accurate and readable English style that does not attempt to render the rhythm and rhyme scheme of the original German texts but allows the reader to appreciate the beauty and atmosphere of the poetry set by Bach. The volume also includes a short glossary of geographical and mythological names, a list of dedicatees of the secular cantatas, a list of the poets with their dates, and an introduction to the cantatas by Martin Neary, former organist of Winchester Cathedral and Westminster Abbey. This corrected and revised printing incorporates a number of corrections to the text and a new alphabetical index of the cantatas by title.
