BCW: Oster-Oratorium BWV 249 - Revised & updated Discography

Augut 4, 2017:

Oster-Oratorium BWV 249 "Kommet, eilet und laufet" (Easter Oratorio "Come, hurry and run") was composed by J.S. Bach in Leipzig for Easter Sunday of 1725. The oratorio was performed 3 more times in Leipzig on the same event: in 1738, between 1743-1746 and in 1749. The oratorio is scored for soprano, alto, tenor & bass soloists; 4-part Chorus; and orchestra 3 trumpets, timpani, 2 oboes, oboe d'amore, bassoon, 2 recorders, transverse flute, violins & continuo.

The discography pages of Oster-Oratorium BWV 249 on the BCW have been revised and updated. See:
Complete Recordings (45):
http://www.bach-cantatas.com/Vocal/BWV249.htm
Recordings of Individual Movements (53):

The revised discography includes many listening/watching options as part of the recording details. When you click a link to video/audio, a new window will open above the discography page and the video/audio will start to play.

I also put at the BCW Home Page:
http://www.bach-cantatas.com/
2 audios & 2 videos of Oster-Oratorium. A short description below the audio/video image is linked to the full details at the discography pages.

I believe this is the most comprehensive discography of this cantata. If you are aware of a recording of Oster-Oratorium BWV 249 missing from these pages, or want to correct/add details of a recording already presented on the BCW, please do not hesitate to inform me.
