BCW: Cantata BWV 161 - Revised & updated Discography

September 17, 2016:

Cantata BWV 161 "Komm, du süße Todesstunde" (Come, sweet hour of death) was composed by J.S. Bach in Weimar for the 16th Sunday after Trinity of 1716. It was performed again in Leipzig on the Feast of Purification of Mary, but the year is not known. The cantata is scored for alto & tenor soloists; 4-part Chorus; and orchestra of 2 recorders, 2 violins, viola & continuo.

The discography pages of BWV 161 on the BCW have been revised and updated. See:
Complete Recordings (37): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV161.htm
Recordings of Individual Movements (11): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV161-2.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 & 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 are the most comprehensive discography of the cantata. If you are aware of a recording of BWV 161 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/BWV161-D4.htm

Enjoy,
