Bach 2000 vol. 81

Thank goodness that Teldec has finally decided to release their Bach 2000 series as seperate discs.
I have never heard the Motets before this CD.
I find them too long and sort of annoying!
The packaging is quite nice and attractive.

Too long and sort of annoying? No, the motets are beautiful as is this recording. Highly recommended.
