This chapter examines decline in the compositional productivity of Johann Sebastian Bach in Leipzig after 1729 and his decision to engage in musical parodies. After 1729, only one of Bach's extant cantatas can be considered wholly original. These are a lot of speculations about why Bach stopped writing cantatas and Passions for Leipzig. This chapter suggests that it may be because of Bach's completion of his five-year plan for well-regulated church music or his interest in bringing his music to some kind of final form.

Keywords:   Johann Sebastian Bach, musical composition, musical parodies, cantatas, Passions, church music
