Comments:Alan M. Kriegsman said:

Sometimes one comes across what one feels is truly a "definitive" interpretation; such is the case, for me, with the Arleen Auger performance, under Rilling, of the extraordinary aria "Wie zittern und wanken," no. 3 in BWV 105, the cantata "Herr, Gehe nicht ins Gericht"
