2.0 out of 5 starsWonderful Bach, less pleasing Jacobs24 May 2004
By Armindo - Published on Amazon.com
Bach's cantatas are so beautiful but this particular recording doesn't do them justice. Instrumentally Chiara Banchini does a good job but Jacobs leaves much to be desired. His sharp and pinched - especially in the high regions - voice is discomforting. His lower notes have more warmth but not much is sung in that register. If you're not a Jacobs fan, don't be deceived by this set's affordable price and go for one of Scholl's Bach collections.
