In the baroque era music was very much part of everyday life. For rulers and aristocrats it was also a means of representation. They competed with each other to attract the best composers and musicians. They sometimes expressed their appreciation or even admiration for the musicians in their service. That doesn't imply they dealt with them on terms of equality, let alone friendship. Musicians were rather low on the social ladder and were expected to know their place. This explains why musically-gifted aristocrats were not expected to compose. If they did, they called themselves dilettanti. That has given this disc its name as it includes cantatas by composers from the higher echelons of society.
