Notes and Editorial Reviews

The original version of BWV 36, known as BWV 36c, is treated to a sprightly outing on Reinhard Goebel’s set of secular cantatas. But the major works here are two allegory cantatas, BWV 206 and 207, and the mythology-based BWV 201, "The Contest between Phoebus and Pan," in which the critic Midas is given ass’s ears for preferring Pan’s cheery bluster to Phoebus’s ornate artistry in a singing contest. Goebel attacks these pieces with his customary gusto, to splendid effect in the noisier, more colourful movements, such as the March and Chorus that open BWV 207.
