4.0 out of 5 stars Bach Edition Volume 12 (of 23), 27 Feb 2008
By 
This review is from: Bach Edition Volume 12 - Cantatas Vol 6 (Audio CD)
This set is one in a series of 23 separate boxes which collectively provide the complete works of Johann Sebastian Bach on 160 CDs.

Bach's entire 200 sacred cantatas, which were recorded especially for this set by the Holland Boys Choir, occupy a total of 60 CDs on twelve volumes and represent the first time these works have been performed and recorded in their entirety as a single collection.

The 5 CDs are supplied in a compact box with liner notes showing performers, recording dates, recording venues and background information on the music.

The set is generally offered at a mid-price making it a good value for money collection of Bach's music. However, Bach's complete works (which include this set of recordings) are available in one big box, the `Bach Edition' which is a more cost effective way of buying the individual 23 box sets in this series.

Note: The original 160 CD set `Bach Edition' which was released in 2000 to commemorate the `International Bach Year' (250 years since his death) has been superseded by a new 2006 version which consists of the same recordings but reduced down onto 155 CDs in a slightly more compact box.

In summary, whichever version is chosen, this is great music at an affordable price.
