Sunday Bach - Septuagesima Sunday

Today is Septuagesima Sunday, the third Sunday before Lent, which begins the pre-Lenten season known as Shrovetide. Bach wrote three cantatas for this Sunday - BWV 144, Nimm, was dein ist, und gehe hin (1724); a chorale cantata BWV 92, Ich hab in Gottes Herz und Sinn (1725); and a beautiful gem of a solo cantata for soprano, BWV 84, Ich bin vergnügt mit meinem Glücke (1727). Enjoy!
