The city of Leipzig was the starting point of Georg Philipp Telemann’s musical career. He was music director of the New Church and also composed his first works of church music, including the Magnificat in C Major, here. Even in the ensuing stages of his life, in Sorau, Eisenach, Frankfurt am Main and Hamburg, Telemann placed great value on contemporary liturgical music; in the course of his long life he wrote more than 1,600 cantatas, more than 1,300 of which have survived. In these works, Telemann – like his friend and colleague Johann Sebastian Bach – placed great importance on illustrating the text using graphic musical means.
