Comments:Bob Halliday said:

This pre-Stone Age recording of this cantata is still my favorite because of the quality of the solo singing. The performance practice is sometimes violates PC criteria, but the whole thing has a feeling of commitment that, to at least one pair of ears, only Herreweghe and Richter approach among subsequent recordings.
