"Ton Koopman has made a bid for an unbreakable mark for comprehensive coverage in an integral
Read more compilation of the Bach cantatas. Unlike his predecessors, Helmuth Rilling, the Harnoncourt-Leonhardt tandem, and Brilliant Bach’s Pieter Jan Leusink, Koopman’s edition incorporates not only all of the extant sacred cantatas but the known secular cantatas as well—and then some.

Despite inevitable changes in personnel over the decade, the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and its Chorus remained consistently fresh and alert, due, no doubt, to the unflagging enthusiasm of their leader. One can’t think back over the series without coming to the conclusion that Koopman enjoyed every moment of it. It’s a tribute to his dedication that he has managed to convey that sense of wonder to all of us. It goes without saying that Koopman’s series has been a magnificent achievement, certainly the best choice among the available complete cantata collections."
