Sunday Bach - Feast of the Purification of Mary

Today is the 5th Sunday after Epiphany, but Bach didn't write any cantatas for that occasion. However, the Feast of the Purification of Mary is on February 2 (just 3 days ago this year) and Bach wrote several beautiful cantatas for that celebration. I chose three of the loveliest, a chorale cantata and two beautiful solo cantatas for bass voice - BWV 125, Mit Fried und Freud ich fahr dahin; BWV 82, Ich habe genug; and BWV 158, Der Friede sei mit dir. Enjoy!
