Here's a neat website that lists all of Bach's cantatas according to where they fit into the Lutheran church year. It's really useful if you want to pick a random Bach cantata to listen to, or to play on your amateur classical radio show.

This weekend it's BWV 140, the ever-popular Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme. What's more, as Wikipedia explains, there's rather infrequently a 27th Sunday after Trinity, so 2008 is an unusually good year for Wachet auf. Score!

See, this is the side of organized religion that I like: the potential of generating large, ordered arrays of classical-music-related data.
