If you get your idea of a Bach cantata from John Eliot Gardiner's SDG live set, then listening to these recordings from Sigiswald Kuijken may give you a quiet shock.

Gardiner's performance method is dominated by an expert, energetic chorus, exploding with sibilants and consonants in the best English choir tradition. His choir is backed up by a powerful band and solos generally taken by well-known concert or opera singers. All is pazazz - or extreme pathos. The audience must be grabbed by the throat; that seems to be Gardiner's guiding principle, and "fair enough" you may say - after all, he wants to sell records.

Sigi Kuijken is more concerned with Bach's own intentions and practices in church music. His performances are dominated by the band, around which the text is hung by single voices - in the "chorus" movements, as well as the "solo" movements. You might suppose this results in inaudible "choruses" but this is not so; four voices together can make a lot of noise (indeed acoustic theory tells us that Gardiner's 32 singers will only be twice as loud as Kuijken's 4). What changes is the way we listen to the voices; instead of hearing a choir accompanied by an orchestra in a mini-oratorio, we now hear a sort of texted concerto; and it comes as less of a surprise to learn that Bach himself did not call his church-pieces "cantatas", but often referred to them as "concertos".

Kuijken pushes this approach to its extreme by his choice of performers.
