This libretto text is on several websites, and was presumably copied from one of them. Copyright in the translation may therefore be dubious. Mark1 12:39, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

I'm fairly sure the translation is PD, its been around since before 1923 judging from the scores I've come across. I transwikied it out to Wikisource, though. I felt the WP article would be better off having a synopsis of each movement, and linked to the WS page for anyone interested in reading the full libretto.

Schweigt stille, plaudert nicht, BWV 211Coffee Cantata – I don't see a particular downside applying WP:USEENGLISH here: in English the English name is probably more recognizable and easier to remember than its German incipit and/or the BWV number. There is none of the five WP:CRITERIA that loses anything here, and several that are better off (recognizability, conciseness). True, there is the WP:MUSICSERIES aspect, but several compositions in the original cantata range of BWV numbers deviate from the "German name, BWV number" series format (the Easter Oratorio being one of them) -- Francis Schonken (talk) 16:05, 11 December 2015 (UTC)--Relisted.

Discussion[edit]

  • Coffee Cantata is a redirect, people will find it under that name. I miss any indication at Bach's authorship which BWV 211 provides. We avoid Moonlight Sonata, why should we start again? We say La bohème in French to keep the original. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:39, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
