If you don't yet own a single disc from Suzuki's cantata series
(Swedish BIS - thank's Robert!) you have here a good starting point. All these three cantatas are late choral cantatas, 'mature' works for which Bach apparently saved much time and energy. Take for instance cantata 'Ich ruf zu dir...' (BWV 177), it's opening chorus or the following aria 'Ich bitt noch...' and play it to anyone. I bet s/he starts listening to it regardless the situation...There are two discs more in the series: vols 54&55, both almost as superb as this. So, it is the end of the 18 years' project ... or is it? There will surely be many releases from Suzuki and Bach Collegium Japan but what about cantatas? There's been discussion about the re-release of the first 27 cantatas in SACD/box (preliminary backed by Robert von Bahr himself). Let's just hope this will be true already in the near future since to buy volumes individually is not so easily done even in our digital age and there's not any abundance of multichannel recordings of Bach. 'Ich bitt noch mer o Herr Gott'!
