Bach Cantatas
Index to Recordings & Discussions

This section of the Bach Cantatas Website (BCW) contains comprehensive discographies of all Bach Cantatas. The recordings of each work are arranged chronologically, according to recording date. This section also contains discussions of Bach Cantatas, most of which have been compiled from the Bach Cantatas Mailing List (BCML). The cantatas are being discussed in the BCML on a weekly basis, according to an agreed Order of Discussion. The 2nd cycle of cantata discussions started at the beginning of 2005. This round the cantatas are discussed chronologically, in the order J.S. Bach initially performed them.
If you are aware of a recording of Bach Cantata/s not listed in the recording pages and/or have corrections to listed recording/s, please send the info to me in accordance with the guidelines at:
How to contribute.
If you want to participate in the cantata discussions, and you are not yet a member of the BCML, you are invited to join. The instructions how to join the BCML and how to post messages appear at:
