This volume represents the only annual cycle of sacred music of the 18th century printed in score; it was completed in 1744. The textual basis stems from Erdmann Neumeister. In contrast to the usual practice of the Telemann Edition to edit segments of the church years, here the entire course of the church year is presented. The music to be performed at the beginning of each part of the church year and at special celebrations is included.

Telemann used a variety of expressive polyphonic techniques to create the introductory dicta. These, like the chorales, are written in concentrated three-part harmony.

The preface provides information on the printing history of the church year and its dissemination supplemented by comments on performance practice; the critical report analyses the rich source material.

Editions of Telemann's preface (with his performance notes and an explanation of his figured bass system), the preface on the printing of the texts and the texts of the compositions contained in the volume flank the edition of the music. Facsimiles from the original print and from Hamburg performance materials are included.
