Comments:Henk Meulendijks said:

Second volume of 20 volumes of each 3 discs. The whole project lasts 10 years. All cantata's will be peformed live and will be broadcasted by the dutch radio. The voices are somewhat clearer than volume 1. On this volume the tenor has changed according to the radio concerts the alt and the soprano will alter.

The next volume is the last volume of cantatas from Arnstadt, Mulhausen and Weimar.
