Cantata BWV 79 "Gott der Herr ist Sonn und Schild" (God the Lord is sun and shield) was composed by J.S. Bach in Leipzig for the Feast of the Reformation (October 31) of 1725, and was performed again in 1730. The cantata is scored for soprano, alto & bass soloists; 4-part Chorus; and orchestra of 2 horns, timpani, 2 transverse flutes, 2 oboes, 2 violins, viola & continuo.
The discography pages of BWV 79 on the BCW have been revised and updated. See:
Complete Recordings (35): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV79.htm
Recordings of Individual Movements (40) http://www.bach-cantatas.com/BWV79-2.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 79 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.
