BCW: Cantata BWV 197- Revised & updated Discography

November 24, 2017:

Cantata BWV 197 " Gott ist unsre Zuversicht" (God is our confidence) was composed by J.S. Bach for a wedding probably in 1736-1737, based on an earlier cantata for Christmas BWV 197a, which has only partly survived. This 2-part cantata is scored for soprano, alto & bass soloists; 4-part Chorus; and orchestra of 3 trumpets, timpani, 2 oboes, oboe d'amore, (2 transverse flutes), bassoons obbligato, 2 violins, viola continuo.

The discography pages of BWV 197 on the BCW have been revised and updated. See:
Complete Recordings (11): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV197.htm
Recordings of Individual Movements (13): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV197-2.htm
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 the cantata. 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 wedding cantata. If you are aware of a recording of BWV 197 missing from these pages, or want to correct/add details of a recording already presented on the BCW, please inform me.

You can also read on the BCW the recent discussion of the cantata in the BCML (4th round): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV197-D4.htm

Enjoy,
