Notes & Reviews:

As one of the finest of many respected recordings of Bach's cantatas on the Vanguard label, this coupling of two of Bach's most emotional cantatas is a long-lost treasure. This CD reissue is the first in 20 years.

Gramophone
The chief strengths of these performances lie in Prohaska's feeling for line but additionally in the deeply affective singing of Laurence Dutoit, Kurt Equiluz - this must have been one of his very first Bach cantata recordings - and Hans Braun. Readers, by the way should not for a second imagine that these are old-fashioned sluggish performances. They are not!
