Cantata No.212: Mer Hahn En Neue Oberkeet (The Chamberlain is now our Squire) BWV 212.

The Coffee Cantata (BA 10211) and the Peasant Cantata (BA 10212) both on librettos by Picander, are among the best-known and most frequently performed of Bach’s secular cantatas.

The Peasant Cantata of 1742, Bach’s last datable cantata, is a musical description of folk life.

It was composed as a tribute to Picander’s superior, Carl Heinrich von Dieskau, who had inherited the family estate in 1742.

Both cantatas reveal Bach’s mastery in their unusual subject-matter, formal design, and musical workmanship. Now they appear in separate editions based on the “New Bach Edition” with straightforward and easy-to-play Piano reductions by Andreas Köhs.

- Urtext of the “New Bach Edition”.

- Straightforward and easy-to-play Piano reduction.

- Vocal score (BA10212-90), performance material (BA10212) and study score (TP1212) available for sale.
