this set of the complete cantatas is simply an inspirational bargain. Full warm singing and playing, with great stereo sound..... like being in the conductor's position. Also great to have fabulous sopranos singing their hearts out. The best and greatest bargain I have ever purchased in CD audio format by a long way. As per the comments of the previous reviewer, this is astonishingly and ravishingly joyous music, disc after disc after disc. I am a fan of Gardiner's cantatas, but this is such an affordable complete set, is very different in a big hearted way, and is certainly every bit as good if not better. Just wonderful music, so warm, so joyful, so full-hearted !

Not only is this collection significantly cheaper than any other, in my view it's way superior to its competitors. For a start you get not only the sacred cantatas but the secular ones too plus other bits and bobs. The recording quality is superb throughout, and I speak as one who began his professional life as a sound recording engineer and has worked professionally with sound recording ever since. The soloists are all first-class, which is more than can be said for various other collections I've tried over the years where the quality of the singing has been very variable and often downright poor. Pace the remarks of some earlier reviewers (whose reviews seem to have disappeared!), Rilling's tempi seem absolutely spot on to me. One reviewer described them as turgid; I have no idea where they got that from. Take the aria 'Nun Verschwinden alla Plagen' from BWV 32 as an example. Rilling's version is actually the fastest but it's not too fast: his tempo is exactly right for the conveying the rhythmic locomotive power of the aria. It is everyone else's versions that tip over into turgidity. Whichever way you look it, this is a fantastic buy, and probably the best musical purchase I will ever have made. But I notice they keep putting the price up -- let's hope Hanseller don't get too greedy. It's wonderful to have this collection accessible to ordinary pockets.

Grab this before the sellers change their minds about the price...

Helmuth Rilling was the first person ever to record all the cantatas. He actually didn't set out with this in mind, but it sort of worked out that way. The whole thing took over 20 years to do, and the later performances were more informed by the growing knowledge of and interest in period performance. Nevertheless, these are played on modern instruments with a choir with female singers and using female soloists (including Arleen Auger, who sang in many of them). This, of course, will not appeal to folk who like "authentic" performance, but the fact of the matter is that we can never have truly authentic performance, and it's a delusion to think otherwise. In any case, I have always thought that Bach is music for eternity, to be played in the spirit in which it is written, and not confined to a musical straitjacket.

Rilling was a great Bachian, and this set is outstandingly musical, an absolute joy. I personally regard some of these cantatas to be the best versions available anywhere - ones that come to mind are BWV129, BWV90 and BWV148. The others are also all splendid. They are different from my other sets (complete Gardiner and Leusink, and various Koopman, Suzuki, Werner and Harnoncourt), but every bit as enjoyable. And at this price they're a bargain. If I didn't already have them all, I'd snap this up. Go snapping.

This set dates from the 1970's- 80's and was completed for the Bach tercentenary in 1985. It has received criticism from some purists who nowadays favour period instruments , young male voices as opposed to women's choruses etc but for me this set is a revelation and a real bargain. I was prepared for a bit of muddy and dated recorded sound but these performances are very clear with a host of excellent soloists , fine instrumental textures and good pacing from Rilling et al. The booklet and cd rom is excellent and the whole set is tremendous value.

There are a few good Bach cantatas, in my opinion, and this is one of the best ones.

The box set is simple and "budget" but very well organised. It has 60 cds with the sacred cantatas on red discs and 11 cds with
secular cantatas on blue discs. They have a big number making it very easy to find out what you are looking for. They don't call cd one, two etc but volume one, two...
volume 69 is formed by cd 1 and 2 so you have 69 volumes but 70 css.

The 72th disc is a cdrom with texts for all songs , a biography and a complete track list. Texts for songs are in German, English, French and Spanish.
I have mac but the cd rom is for windows. Fortunately, it is not a problem because Hänssler also thought about that. All you need to do is to open the cdrom and look for a pdf for macs. You can copy it to your mac
and you will have all texts, biography and track list. I don't know if the cd rom has content that is accessible only for PCs but it doesn't really matter because all the important stuff
is available in the pdf for macs.

There are also two booklets, one with an introduction to the set and one with a complete track list, which is reproduced in the cd rom , showing
how more considerate Hännsler is than bigger companies such as Deutsche Grammophone.

The technical quality of sound and playing seemed very good to me. The performers are German so the singing is more natural and they don't force
guttural sounds like Gardiner's British performers do.

Unfortunately I made the mistake of ordering from a seller different from Amazon UK itself and my box set arrived looking like it had a previous owner
so I returned it.
