Why?[edit]

What's the point of this "navigation" template? Aren't those "songs" normally described as cantatas? Why these? Aren't they better covered in {{Bach cantatas}}? I think a comprehensive navigation template for JSB would be way too big; this one presents an unexplained selection and is not helpful to readers. I'm going to remove it from all articles on my watchlist. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 03:57, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

I agree. This is terribly misleading to readers. What is the rationale here? Voceditenore (talk) 04:41, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
The recently edited version is much better. I suggest adding to it List of Bach cantatas and List of Bach cantatas by liturgical function. Voceditenore (talk) 10:09, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
I started a discussion about this template at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Classical_music#Template:Johann_Sebastian_Bach_should_be_kept. This should be discussed there before removing it from any further articles.--Jax 0677 (talk) 10:20, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
