BCW: Cantata BWV 106 - Revised & updated Discography

March 17, 2016:

The discography pages of the Funeral Cantata BWV 106 "Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit" (God's time is the very best time), AKA Actus Tragicus, on the BCW have been revised and updated.
The cantata is scored for alto & tenor & bass soloists; 4-part chorus (OVPP performances add soprano to the 3 soloists for the chorus parts); and orchestra of 2 recorders, 2 violas da gamba & continuo.

This early masterpiece is one of Bach's most popular and best-known cantatas. There are currently 93 complete recordings (not including numerous recordings of individual movements) from all over the world: Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, England, Germany, Hungary, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia. Scotland, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, USA.

The discography is presented chronologically by recording date in 8 pages, a page per a decade. On the BCW there are also 8 discussion pages of this cantata, including the recent discussion from this month.
All are linked from the main page of this cantata: http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV106.htm
The revised discography includes many listening/watching options to recordings directly from the discography pages, just below the recording details.

I also put at the BCW Home Page: http://www.bach-cantatas.com/
2 audios and 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 cantata. If you are aware of a recording of BWV 106 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.

Enjoy,
