    Bach's "Coffee House" Cantata

    Leave it to Ton Koopman to perform JSB's Coffee Cantata, BWV 211 in the setting of a German Coffee House. But the informal setting is quite effective. And, of course, the music is superb.

    You know you have reached Middle Age when it takes you longer to rest up than it did to get tired.

    Interesting concept and the music is always good. A relaxing way to listen to good music and have a nice coffee even maybe with some Bailey's. Thanks

    Yep, Bailey's in a Triple Cappucino or Triple Espresso - YUMMY!!!

    JSBach is known to have performed the "Coffee Cantata" at Zimmermann's Kafe in Leipzig on quite a few occasions.............If my memory serves me, Zimmermann's is still in operation........
