Hansseler Edition Bachakademie, volumes 1 - 68

I prefer this series of the Cantatas recordings to any other, even the Koopman. The sound is rich and warm and the performance is exquisite. Rilling's approach is more traditional than the recent "historic" style performances. For this reason, I enjoyed the Cantatas more than ever before. Gorgeous!
