Program:

J.S.BACH  (1685 - 1750)
Cantata  BWV 56  -  “Ich will den Kreuzstab gerne tragen”
Cantata  BWV 199  -  “Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut” (1714 Weimar version in c-minor**)

**BWV 199 was only known in fragments, and was published that way in the old Bach Gesellschaft Edition until the full Bach autograph, which had come to Denmark through the Danish official, music collector and composer Peter Grønland (1761 - 1825), was discovered by the Danish scholar Matiennsen early in the twentieth century. It was printed for the first time in 1913. Since then four versions of the piece have come to light.
