BCW: Cantata BWV 193 - Revised & updated Discography

September 13, 2016:

Cantata BWV 193a "Ihr Häuser des Himmels, ihr scheinenden Lichter" (You towers of Heaven, you shining light) was composed by J.S. Bach in Leipzig for the Name day of Frederick August I in 1727. The music & part of the text of this cantata have been lost. Cantata BWV 193 "Ihr Tore zu Zion" (You gates/doors to Zion) was composed by J.S. Bach for the Leipzg Town Council Inauguration of 1727, a few weeks after BWV 193a. Both cantatas are based on a lost cantata from Bach's Köthen.period. Some of BWV 193's music is also missing and it should be reconstructed for performance. BWV 193 is scored for soprano & alto soloists; 4-part Chorus; and orchestra of 2 oboes, 2 violins, viola & continuo.

The discography pages of BWV 193 on the BCW have been revised and updated. See:
Complete Recordings (4): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV193.htm
Recordings of Individual Movements (3): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV193-2.htm
The revised discographies include 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 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 193 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/BWV193-D4.htm

Enjoy,
