This review is from: Bach Edition Volume 12 - Cantatas Vol 6 (Audio CD)
Although 10 months after since the first volumes of this series appeared Gramophone did review Leusink's set in October 2000. The verdict - the soloists not up to the big names on Gardiner (etc.) recordings, but otherwise good choral singing and a few standout performances in each box. Recommended as an economical way to survey Bach's vast output. I think this is the main point, as anyone buying either these boxes or the more pricey Harnoncourt, Koopman, or Rilling sets will no doubt already own premium price individual CDs of famous cantatas like Actus Tragicus and Ich habe genug.
