BCW: Cantata BWV 184 - Revised & updated Discography

May 25, 2016:

Cantata BWV 184a for New Year's Day Congratulations was composed in Köthen between 1717 and 1723. The music & text of this cantata have been lost.
Cantata BWV 184 "Erwünschtes Freudenlicht" (Longed-for light of joy) for Whit Tuesday [3rd Day of Pentecost] was composed in Leipzig in 1724. The music of this cantatas is based on BWV 184a's music and it is scored for soprano, alto & tenor soloists; 4-part Chorus; and orchestra of 2 transverse flutes, 2 violins, viola & continuo.

The discography pages of BWV 184 on the BCW have been revised and updated. See:
Complete Recordings (11): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV184.htm
Recordings of Individual Movements (1): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV184-2.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 1 video of the cantata. A short description below the audio/video image is linked to the full details at the discography pages.

I believe this are the most comprehensive discography of the cantata. If you are aware of a recording of BWV 184 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.

You can also read on the BCW the current discussion of the cantata in the BCML (4th round): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV184-D4.htm

Enjoy,
