Daniel Eberlin (1647–ca. 1715), the father-in-law of Georg Philipp Telemann, was one of many German musicians who at the beginning of their careers visited Italy to learn from Italian composers. Later he would divide his time between Kassel and Eisenach, where he met and exchanged influence with members of the Bach family. His four extant cantatas incorporate elements from the genres of motet, vocal concerto, strophic devotional song, chorale, and, in one case, violin sonata. Ich will in aller Noth, for solo tenor, solo violin, and continuo, features a highly virtuosic solo violin part and can almost be termed a violin sonata with text. Ich kan nit mehr ertragen diesen Jammer features an expressive dialogue between soprano and bass soloists, displaying Eberlin's skill in applying musical-rhetorical devices. Allmächtiger, heyliger, ewiger Gott is a strophic song for four-part chorus with violins, viols, and basso continuo. Finally, Vae misero, qui Deum meum is a highly expressive work in concertato style for alto solo, bass solo, and basso continuo.
