Cantatas for the Sunday after Epiphany

Cantatas for the Sunday after Epiphany include BWV 154, BWV 124 and BWV 32.

Recordings of BWV 154 can be found here.

Recordings of BWV 124 are located here.

Recordings of BWV 32 are listed here.

These three cantatas are musically at a lower energy level compared to most that have been heard since Christmas.  The highlight for each of the above cantatas are the last two movements in each, with the 5th (and second to the last) of BWV 32 deserving special recognition.

Of the three cantatas, BWV 124 is probably the most uniformly pleasing.
