When J.S. Bach assumed the post of Cantor of St. Thomas Leipzig in 1723, he achieved the opportunity to realize his artistic aspirations: A Well Regulated Church Music. On the first Sunday after Trinity in 1723 Bach began a self-imposed goal to provide cantatas for most Sundays and feast days of the church year. In all, Bach composed a remarkable five cycles of cantatas, of which three survive. Bach Collegium San Diego opens the 14th Season with cantatas 179 and 42, chronicling Bach’s first year in Leipzig.
