Aryeh, Thanks for the wonderful New Year’s gift you have given to all lovers of Bach’s music.

In turn Chiara Massini this morning in Vienna put on two You Tubes videos of her performances of Bach’s English Suite BWV807 that we can all enjoy also: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDWJOKEdKLA

Happy New Year to All,

New Year Greeting

A very happy new year to you. Once again thank you so much for your extraordinary web site which has given so much pleasure and information over the years.

Kenji Ohmura [Manager/Admin'r, BACH-CHOR TOKYO, Japan] wrote (January 1, 2010):
We thank you for your web-site about J.S. Bachs various works.
It is an excellent contribution for expanding Bachs musics to world wide, and especially into Japan.

We, Bach-Chor Tokyo, has been performed Bach's Kirchenkantatas and several Oratorios (Matthäus, Johannes or Weihnachts, and so on) for more than 48 years in Japanese translated text.

We will perform at first time the h-moll Messe in Japanese version in 2011.
At this juncture, I would like to make our text insert on your web-site. <>

Happy 9th anniversary, Aryeh, and the Bach website. I have used it often, if not steadily, and I can say with confidence, it is an industrywide leader in the the effective way it is organized, its completeness, its accuracy --not least in the responsiveness of the maintenance staff; I assume that's you.

I'm not an expert on the matter, but I suspect that there will be widespread alarm if your server were to crash, or some similar calamity were to occur, and I sincerely hope there is a complete backup somewhere.

Only J. S. Bach could inspire such calm and unflagging devotion, both from yourself, and the ever-enthusiastic BCML, whose catholic interests enables your site to extend its hospitality to so many additional composers. I would say that it is a model of Internet cooperation, except that you bear sole responsibility! As you must suspect, one of the more surprising reasons for the widespread admiration the site enjoys is the extensive collection of biographies. Here's wishing you a wonderful anniversary year, and I hope I'm around when the site hits the big one-oh!!

Arch, Bach and Aryeh O fan

Despite my Lutheran origins and dedication to « classical » music, i never listened to the whole Cantatas. This year I decided to follow them after Christmas, and all my prejudices (like Stravinsky about Vivaldi : it must be 200 times the same cantata) are gone. Your pages are helping me to catch all the wealth and the diversity of these masterpieces. Since I discovered at 18 Wagner, i didn't had such a musical revelation (I'm 38 now!).

In addition to the message from Frits I express my best thanks for the possibility to use your Bach Cantata website with its immense and profound information. Since some years with a somehow general interest for Bach’s music and the Baroque era, I am now concentrating on the cantatas, mainly influenced by my colleague and friend Frits Herbold, whom I worked together with for some 20 years. He had the generosity to let me participate in his huge collection of Bach´s vocal works and we are now putting our forces together to build up a "sounding library" of all cantata interpretations.

JS Bach Cantata BWV 170

I stumbled by chance onto your discussion page about Bach's Cantata Janet Baker, Vergnugte Ruh. My recording of this Cantata is with Janet Baker and Neville Marriner. I can never hear that beautiful first Aria without crying! I was so glad to find that many other subscribers to your website would agree with me. Anyhow, thank you for these pages which celebrate the Master! For whatever reason, I always return to the Cantatas as my favourite of Bach's works. I do believe his very soul is in them.

The late Glenn Gould lived right down the street from me and as one of the great interpreters of Bach, I used to wonder what Glenn Gould thought about the Cantatas. Never did find out. The day he died, I was returning from a day of sailing down at the harbour. I got off the subway and went by his apartment and found someone had scrawled, "Glenn Gould lives forever" on his mailbox!! Don't think he spent much time there though.

<> I should have thanked you sometime ago for your fascinating information about your Bach trip. If we manage to make a trip to Germany this summer, your experience will be very useful -I do not expect however to meet such distinguished Bach experts as you did!
<>
you know by now, Aryeh, that I come and I go, but month after month, year after year, you continue to work so industriously and so usefully for all who share your love of Bach's music . I used to think there might come a point where you would feel you have done enough - but now I know better. I can only express my admiration and continuing gratitude for all you have done, are now doing, and no doubt will continue to do. All who love Bach are in your debt.
