Johann Sebastian Bach: Ascension oratorio

Johann Sebastian Bach

Ascension oratorio

BWV 11, 1735


Besides the Christmas Oratorio BVW 248, Bach composed an additional work for the feast days of the church year 1734/35: the Ascension Oratorio BWV 11. Although in its dimensions and character the oratorio is akin to his cantatas, it occupies a special place as a result of the epic text on which it is based; the text includes a biblical story. The facsimile edition, which includes introductory texts by two famous Bach scholars, presents the complete 32 pages of the autograph, which itself suffered damage through the ink corrosion. It serves to preserve this valuable cultural treasure.
