I inserted a comma. I fail to see why a Christmas cantata should presented now. Pentecost (BWV 74) seems strange enough. I try to expand the one for next Sunday, BWV 39, but will probably be told we have too many ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 23:24, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
Unlike something like WP:OTD, there's no date relevance requirement, and waiting till then will put this well past the "recently expanded" rule. Besides, every day is Christmas ;) Nikkimaria (talk) 23:52, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
I agree with "Everyday is Christmas". I don't agree with the "moral hangover", taken from the line (the first line about the music!) "Despite the celebratory occasion, the piece offers listeners a "moral hangover" after the possible overindulgence of the holidays." Excuse me, I don't believe this is factual and encyclopedic. There is no "celebratory occasion" on the Sunday AFTER Christmas (for which the cantata was written, which the hook doesn't tell us). It's a normal Sunday, look at the Christmas Oratorio: 6 parts, 5 with brass, one without, the one for the ordinary Sunday. The instrumentation tells you something if you listen ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:49, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
