While looking at the scores for Trinity 2 cantatas, I found that the V&P for BWV 76 is missing page 31. I will figure out how to get my copy of this page to Aryeh.

PS: Dunno if this is of much interest to others, but I do like to check these things out myself, particularly when contemplating a performance. Or thinking deeply about them.

[To Bruce Simonson] Thanks for the input.
I have links to the Facsimile pages on Bach Digital website at the pages of Cantatas BWV 2, BWV 76 and several others.
The missing page was inserted at the PDF V&P Score of Cantata BWV 76.

Thanks,

 

Discussions in the Week of May 22, 2011 (3rd round)

Introduction to BWV 2 -- Ach Gott, vom Himmel sieh darein

Weekly reminder:

This week we continue the Trinity season with BWV 2, the second of two works for Trinity 2. Note that Will Hoffman prefers the more accurate format, Trinity +2, to indicate the Sundays after Trinity. Is there an accepted convention?

Details of text, commentary, recordings, and previous discussion are accessible via: http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV2.htm

The link to commentary by Julian [Mincham] is especially recommended as an introduction to listening.

The BWV 2 page also has convenient access to notes from the Gardiner and Koopman (notes by Christoph Wolff) CD issues, via links beneath the cover photos.

Chorale texts are accessible via the BWV 2 home page, and the chorale melody is accessible via the chorale text page.

Bach uses the Latin inscription on the cantata wrapper:

Domin: 2 post Trin

[Dominica Secunda post Trinitatis]

Second Sunday after Trinity

The most common English abbreviation is Trinity II.
