Bachipedia – a project of the J.S. Bach Foundation
The J.S. Bach Foundation is performing the entire vocal oeuvre of Johann Sebastian Bach in an ambitious concert cycle lasting around 25 years. The first concert took place in 2006, and since then, all introductory workshops, concerts and reflective lectures have been recorded on video. Over the years, we have amassed an extensive collection of audio and film material as well as other content related to the master’s works. One of the Foundation’s aims is to raise the profile of Bach’s vocal oeuvre – especially among the young. To this end, the Foundation established the “Bachipedia” platform.

BACH FACTORY on BWV 140 "Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme"
The “Bach Factory” is a video series by the J.S. Bach-Stiftung St. Gallen that gives you interesting insights into Bach’s cantatas – including exclusive excerpts from their live performance.
Johann Sebastian Bach’s cantata BWV 140 «Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme» is renowned as one of his most mature and best-loved sacred compositions. Despite the work’s popularity – or perhaps for that very reason – it will be equally entertaining and instructive to explore this positive and joyful cantata in greater depth. Join Xoán Elías Castiñeira and Rudolf Lutz as they uncover the cantata’s secrets!
The concert recording, introductory workshop and reflective lecture (in German) are available at Bachipedia.
