Excellent recording, originally on LP by the Philips Label, nice collection of the tragic cantata 12 juxtaposed with the bright cantata 29. The recording is on modern instruments, but the interpretation is very good and listener friendly. The Sinfonia from 29 is my favourite track and I love the tragic opening chorus in Cantata 12.
Arkiv CD is working to transfer a number of our favourite records, the LP of this I have, and putting them to CD, they are welcome to make cds upon request and will make them availbable to other listeners.
