Bach composed his church cantatas not only for the regular Sundays and feast days of the liturgical year but also for specific occasions. Among the most important of those were weddings of usually well-to-do couples. This CD gathers together these so-called “Wedding” cantatas which were originally issued as part of the award-winning series of the complete cantatas by Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Choir.       Challenge Classics on sale
