Notes & Reviews:

The Windsbacher Knabenchor and the Collegium Musicium of the WDR are joined by stellar soloists Barbara Schlick, Klaus Haffke, Paul Elliot, and Stephen Varcoe in their performance of two of J.S. Bach's most festive and celebratory cantatas. The congratulatory cantata Preise dein Glücke, gesegnetes Sachsen (BWV 215) was composed in honor of the coronation of August III as king of Poland, while Dem Gerechten muss das Licht (BWV 195) was composed for a prominent Leipzig wedding.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
These performances were recorded back in 1986 by a large choir of boys and men with a healthy instrumental backing. The soloists are crackerjack Baroque specialists of their day, as their work here testifies. Fine sound, good notes, full texts with translations.
