Composer: Bach, J. S.
Sample Producer: Milan Digital Audio
Sample Set: Notre Dame de Metz Mutin/Cavaillé-Coll
Software: Hauptwerk V
Genre: Baroque
Description:
The piece was written in 1713 and is part of the cantata Was mir behagt, ist nur die muntre Jagd, BWV 208.[a] The cantata's title translates The lively hunt is all my heart's desire, and it is also known as the Hunting Cantata.

Like the same composer's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring", it is frequently played at weddings.[1] However, it was originally written for a birthday celebration, that of Christian, Duke of Saxe-Weissenfels. Bach was based at the nearby court of Weimar, and musicians from both courts appear to have joined together in the first performance in Weißenfels. Bach is known to have used the music again for other celebrations, but it remained unpublished until after his death.

This is a midi performance I have registered for the Metz. The original file and a vast number of excellent organ midi files you can adapt for Hauptwerk can be downloaded with this link: http://www.organosandomenicorieti.it/scpop/archive/complete_archive.zip
