    That's a really fun part of this forum when friends from all around the world can enjoy music together! It's fascinating. It's not too long ago that when making a telephone call to overseas involved a timing device to make sure you didn't spend too long as it was so expensive. The conversation wasn't even good as due to the satellite relay, most of the conversation was asking the other person to repeat what they had said...

    still listening to my big treasure box, the latest is the cantata's for Trinity Sunday (in between was those for Whit Sunday and all the other friends of Whit)

    Name:  no 25 - Cantatas for Trinity Sunday BWV 194, 176, 165 129.jpg

    Cantata BWV194 'Höchsterwünschtes Freudenfest'
    Recorded: St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall
    Ruth Holton, Daniel Taylor, Paul Agnew, Peter Harvey
    Cantata BWV176 'Es ist ein trotzig und verzagt Ding'
    Recorded: St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall
    Ruth Holton, Daniel Taylor, Paul Agnew, Peter Harvey
    Cantata BWV165 'O heiliges Geist- und Wasserbad'
    Recorded: St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall

    Cantata BWV129 'Gelobet sei der Herr, mein Gott'
    Recorded: St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall

    I love the Höchsterwünschtes Freudenfest and got stuck on a loop on Hilf, Gott, dass es uns gelingt, for a few cycles. It's getting too difficult to come away from these cantatas. I may be stuck here a while.

    I mentioned very casually my listening to the cantatas for Whit Sunday, Whit Monday and Whit Tuesday; hearditis means I was over excited by those mentioned above. Though that wonderful music from the Brandenburg Concerto no. 3 / the sinfonia for Ich liebe den Höchsten von ganzem Gemüte has been playing in my head so decided to come back to those.

    Somewhere (hopefully soon you say) I need to stop posting on this pilgrimage of mine lest it continue for another 50 odd posts but this last one was so moving, profound and beautiful I need to say this is a good part to start to start listening to the cantatas if you wish to try...

    The English cricket season now is in full swing with the start of the Champions Trophy and somewhere during todays match I decided that my next listening would be Stradella's La Susanna.

    However I ended up with going back to the Feast of St John the Baptist (or cantatas for).

    I'm so moved by Christ unser Herr zum Jordan kam it's another that's being listened to more than is normal/healthy. Again, I think it's going to take a while to move beyond this big box.

    I only wish the box came with printed text. I think the electronic text might save a tree or two but I find it a bit of a bu££er to read.

    I think you might enjoy Alfred Dürr's book on the cantatas. It is probably the best companion to a complete set!

    Oh the print run of this must have been small. New copies prices range from GBP 69 to over 300 and the one second hand copy I've found for GBP 50 is listed as *acceptable, large tear on front cover* or something like that.

    I'll walk down to the charity shop now as they have quite a large music books section and maybe also visit our brand new library to see what their music section is like.

    First I'll take a large hit of hayfever tablets.

    Did not enjoy this as much as I thought I was going to - there is something metallic in Lezhneva's voice that puts me off, and the music was just OK. Glad the library bought this rather than me.
