Volume 6 of 20, contains the first cycle of church cantatas from the Leipzig period. Koopman is still going strong, but this cd set is in my opinion NOTBW the best one so far. If your into the cantatas you surley will like it, but if you haven´t heard any cantatas my advice is that you rather should start with volume 2 or 4 in this serie. Maybe an even better start into the cantatas world would be to start with the Christmas Oratorium. What ever you do, don't miss Bach's cantatas!
