Comments:Rich Rosenwald said:

Great recordings of all works. Smooth texture played throughout. The trumpet and timpani parts with chorus are worth listening to. It has the Magnificat, and both the Easter and Ascension oratorios, and would warmly recommend this over the Leonhardt recording of BWVs 249, and 11 on Philips
