Johann Sebastian Bach Psalm 51, BWV 1083,
Transcription of Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi
I Barocchisti conducted by Diego Fasolis
Tilge, Höchster, meine Sünden (Cancel, highest, my sins), BWV 1083, is a cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. The music is based on the Stabat Mater (1736) by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi. Bach's work of the 1740s is classed as a transcription or reworking.The fact that it now has its own BWV number is the result of Bach having added an additional harmonic line to the music.
