Kopenhagen: Chr. Gottl. Proft, 1786. First Edition. Helm 780. Wotquenne 204. BUC, p. 72. Hoboken 1, 234. RISM B117 (2 copies only in the U.S.). C.P.E. Bach wrote the majority of his choral music while serving as music director in Hamburg (1768-88), and it is during this period that he composed the two Litanies. They were written for Schleswig-Holstein, the region north of Hamburg with close ties to Denmark, and this is why he set both the "Old" Litany of Martin Luther and the "New" Litany of the Enlightenment. Both settings are for two SATB choirs, with the first singing the invocations and the second the responses. Danish composer and keyboardist Neils Schiørring (1743-1798) was a student of Bach's in Hamburg and the two remained friends and collaborators, including on harmonizations for the new Danish choral book of 1783.. Oblong quarto (205 x 265 mm). Sewn. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 3ff. (introductions by both Bach and Schiørring), 47 pp. Typeset. Printed introduction by C.P.E. Bach dated Hamburg, March 14, 1785; foreword by Schiørring dated Copenhagen, March 20, 1786. Inscribed by the publisher to Copenhagen Kapellmeister Johann Abraham Peter Schulz (1740-1800), previously in the employ of Prince Heinrich in Rheinsberg. Moderately worn; large dampstain throughout, somewhat darker to several leaves; scattered foxing and soiling, largely contained to margins; outer leaf (title) reinforced with paper tape to recto, clear tape to verso; notation in blue pencil to upper inner corner partially erased; old tape repair to verso of final leaf.
