Bach, throughout his life, composed cantatas for church services. Scholars believe he wrote around 300 of these works, and around 200 are still surviving. This extensive 55 disc box set includes all of Bach’s extant cantatas as well as several fragments and alternative movements. Performing these works is the Bach Collegium Japan, conducted by renowned Bach expert Masaaki Suzuki.
