Comments:Rich Rosenwald said:

Great because the OAE is a period instrument ensemble. For a recording of this hard to find Cantata, You will be very suprised with the quality. Gustav Leonhardt Knows his stuff. This CD is availiable in the US as a special Import for a limited time. If it ever isn't, you can call HMV in Toronto at 1-800-567-8468 and they can special order it for you, but try the US first because it is cheaper.
