Johann Sebastian Bach composed the church cantata Komm, du süße Todesstunde (Come, you sweet hour of death), BWV 161, in Weimar for the 16th Sunday after Trinity, probably first performed on 27 September 1716. Bach had taken up regular cantata composition two years before when he was promoted to concertmaster at the Weimar court, writing one cantata per month to be performed in the Schlosskirche, the court chapel in the ducal Schloss.

This volume includes ten cantatas belonging to Bach's early years in Leipzig, namely 1724-1727. Immediately apparent is Koopman's organ continuo; bright, peppy and all-pervasive, brilliantly played and placed up front to such an extent in BWV 169 that it seems to defeat the purpose of a continuo. This is not always a distraction, however - witness the sheer joy Koopman's playing brings to the second "Sinfonia" in BWV 35.
