Bach, Johann Sebastian
J S Bach Cantata No.62: Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland (BWV 62) (Vocal Score)
Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland BWV 62
Cantata for the First Sunday of Advent
Bach began two of his cantatas (BWV 61 and 62) - belonging to the Weimar and Leipzig periods respectively - with Martin Luther`s Advent hymn "Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland", a German version of the early church hymn "Veni redemptor gentium". The cantata can be described as a Choral Cantata, typical of Bach's late creative period, incorporating the older technical processes of polyphonic chorale settings as well as more modern solo movements.
