JS Bach wrote over 200 cantatas.
At some stages of his career as a church music director it was not unusual for him to compose a new cantata each week.
He also wrote cantatas for special occasions such as weddings, inaugurations, academic and other functions.
This aria is from Cantata No 84 'Ich esse mit Freudin mein weniges Brot' - I eat my little bit of bread with joy.
