Comments:Gerhard Bauhr said:

These three cantatas have been selected in the material collected in the archives of the East German Radio's central library of sound recordings in Berlin during the years 1964-1989 and published under the title "East German Revolution". It's a low budget CD with outstanding interpreters. I have never heard the famous (and difficult) duetto in the Cantata BWV 78 "Wir eilen mit schwachen, doch emsigen Schritten..." sound more beautiful.
