One reason why Robert J's program was so neat was he would have various themes. One theme was he would start each Sunday morning by playing Bach cantatas. He would give background and explain how a certain cantata came to be. Without guidance like that, I can't keep track of whats what. <G>

I only have one CD of cantatas. It has numbers 67, 108, and 127 on it. I like them, but I know I've heard some that I like better.

If you need to find out more, I think our resident Bach vocalist, daffodil, probably knows a good bit about it.

Ed, Thank you for your Holiday greetings. I tried to respond on the 26th but am using an unfamiliar PC that does not like me at all. I think it is jealous because of my involvement with it's owner.

It is sad that there are so few of us that post on this thread. There must be more posters out there that appreciated classical music, even if it is not be Bach. Maybe if someone that knew how to do the "thread thing" could start one that is more general in nature, we could attract more posters, and get a wider range of classical appreciation. If some of the frantic investors on these threads would sit back in the recliner, turn the stereo up a notch, and listen to a good selection of classical music, they might find a few moments of peace and contentment.

Here's wishing all the world a good, safer, and more peaceful 2001.

Okay, in case you couldn't figure it out: that's daffodil sleeping under a blanket of snow :)

Charleymane, thanks for your nice compliment.

Actually, I've never sung any more than a handful of the cantatas. I'm such a sentimental sort that #140 (Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme!) is still my favorite. I've heard it played in so many variations for organ; have sung it in so many ways, that it's just part of my soul.

In fact, I had the Wachet auf theme as my Advent music for my SI profile :)

Perhaps someday I will have the discipline to listen to and study the appropriate Bach cantata every Sunday morning :)

Charley,

I see what you mean. Same thing happens to me. For
example when the radio plays Brandenburg Concerto,
I know it's Brandenburg Concerto, but if you ask me
what No. of the concerto is, I can't tell for sure.
I'll try to be a little better than that...

It's nice to learn that our board member daffodil is a
Bach vocalist. Hats off to you, daffodil! Please post
here often.

Haqi, I thought you were in the process of moving
in the past few days. Wherever you are, enjoy
your holidays.

I believe more Bach listeners will find this place
and join us later. ~_~ :-)

Hi daffodil,

Speaking of vocal music, I Recently listened to
a CD <<Bach. Arias>> by Mezzo-Soprano Magdalena
Kozena. It was a very nice treat to me,
especially No. 1, 8, 11(Mass in B minor), also
No. 2 and 3 in this CD, never feel enough
listening to them...

Please post your comments on Bach singers and
performers when you have a chance (when you
have time, no hurry).

Hi, Ed.

I'm not really up on all of the latest CD's. When I need a Bach fix, I'm just as likely to put on a 25-year-old LP as pop the latest CD into the player :)

Thanks for the info on the "Bach Arias" CD, though. It sounds like one I must have!

daffodil,

Many 25-year-old stuffs could be golden.

Even Kozena's arias sounds great to me, but my
judgement is not in professional level yet. I hope
you feel the same when you listen to CD.

Ed,

I am "kinda" in the process of moving. I am in Florida now but will return to Texas on the 3rd. My traveling has been compromised a bit because of a detached retina, and the re-attachment procedure will not allow my to fly, so I will be Greyhound bound. I will be completely moved by 2/1, plus having completed a new marriage.

I, sincerely, hope you are right about more Bach listeners. The only reason I made the suggestion, is because I am disappointed that more posters have not responded to the thread. One would think they would welcome a "peaceful" thread for a change.
