Georg Philipp Telemann's two-part oratorio for St. John's Day appeared as part of the "great oratorio year" of 1730/31. Originally performed in two parts, before and after the sermon in the Divine Service, Telemann's work now belongs rather to the concert hall repertoire. This hitherto unknown work, which lasts 45 minutes, is richly scored for soloists including 2 sopranos, alto, tenor and 3 basses accompanied by strings, flutes, oboes, horns and timpani, with further soloists and choirs also being employed.
