In 1717 Telemann composed his cantata Gott der Hoffnung erfülle euch for Whit Sunday based on a text by Erdmann Neumeister. It forms part of the Concerten-Jahrgang, also known as Das Harmonische Zion or
Italienischer Jahrgang where all the cantatas are conceived as concertos for vocal and instrumental parts and have been colourfully scored. This particular work includes two oboes, two Corni da Caccia and strings. Vocal soloists, choir and instruments alternate and have equal musical standing in this festive Whit Sunday cantata which provides a valuable addition to the church service or concert repertoire.
