    Default Annual cycle(s) of Bach's Cantatatas

    I've got recordings of all Bach's sacral works recently, so I would like to do something for myself: to listen it all through the year, each cantata on the day which it was written for. Is there any Calendar or something like that which shows it?

    Wikipedia has a list of Bach's cantatas and separate pages for approximately a third of them, many of these pages have the composition date. It's not great but it's a start:

    The Bach Cantata website is THE place to go on that subject. They also have a group (on yahoo or google, I don't remember) where they listen and discuss each cantata. It's a very informative group.

    Crikey, how did you carry them home?






    Ditto what Haydnguy said. The Bach Cantata site is fantastic.

    No, of course. I used my own teleportation machine, which I had invented before I got interested in Bach. If I modify it so it could be used as a time-machine, I will need no recordings any more. I will go to listen the premiere.
    Thank you all!
