Bach - Cantata Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich BWV 150 - Sato | Netherlands Bach Society

  • In the cantata 'Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich', performed by the Netherlands Bach Society conducted by Shunske Sato, the atmosphere changes countless times. This kind of variation in tempo and character is typical of Bach’s early cantatas. It is even referred to sometimes as his earliest cantata. This appears, among other things, from the acrostic that is incorporated in the odd parts of the cantata: the initial letters of the lines of these parts together form the name of the municipal councilor of Mühlhausen (Doktor Conrad Meckbach) who had an important vote in the appointment of Bach as organist there in the year 1707.
