Got several box set's, but often one key singer is poor.,
This review is from: Bach Edition Volume 12 - Cantatas Vol 6 (Audio CD)
A commendable set at bargain prices.The 'tata's work best with duet's and trio/quartet of singer's.Often I can't stand the tenor while the alto surprises me, or |I suddenly hate/love the bass, and Holton isn't strong enough to cover the whole of No.51.
So I'm putting on my mp4 selected highlights, rarely a complete 'tata, though normally each disk has at least one tata that is worth completely recording.Also some tata's are basically poor works which no avarage unit can bring to light.Bach wasn't always on top form.
However, late at night, some of the works are stunning.I'm into no 63 at the moment.Great for helping one get over a disappointment of the heart, so to speak.
Suzuki's version is the best, pricey but worth the dosh.
