Hello and thank you for your posting.

Well, Bach wrote 224 cantatas. You can find more information here below:

About your second question, BWV 30 and BWV 30 look the same to me! Am I missing something? Please, let me know.

All the best,

First of all, thank you very much for helping me
and well my second question was : BWV 30 has the title:" Freue dich, erlöste Schar"
and BWV 30a has the title: "Angenehmes Wiederau, freue dich in deinen Auen!"

Is that the same?

I am sorry, I didn't notice the "a". Of course they are different.

All the best,

Well, that's a lot of information that I can't summarize here, I am sorry, I would suggest you to read the brief Bach's biography on Wikipedia for your basic knowledge:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bach


I think from there you can find most of answers to your questions.

All the best,
