Johann Sebastian Bach assumed the position of Thomaskantor in Leipzig in 1723. One of the
unalterable customs in Leipzig was that the high voice parts in church music should not be

For the church music he performed in Leipzig, Bach was dependent on particularly gifted
young singers from his Thomanerchor (the choir of the city’s Thomaskirche) for the high
parts in his cantatas and oratorios; if there were no suitably talented boy soloists in the
choir for particularly difficult solo parts, he would resort to professional singers, who offered
their services as “altos” or “sopranos” by recourse to special singing techniques.
