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
