7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By J. Mincham on March 8, 2009
Format: Paperback
All music lovers will know the popular works by JS Bach e.g. the Brandenburg Concerti, italian Concerto, suites, preludes and fugues etc. But with the possible exceptions of the B minor mass and St Mattew and John Passions the religious choral music is generally less well know. The 200-plus Lutheran cantatas, however, are now finally finding a wider audience which is discovering what wonderful music they contain.
For those who want to get to know these works a little better and scratch beneath the surface, Stoke's translations of the texts (introduction by Neary) is a must----- JS Bach: the Complete Cantatas provides accessable Enlish translations with the connections to passages from the bible and quotations from the German hymns or chorales. There are no music examples so the 'non reader' will not be put off.--all you need is a CD of the particular cantata and the translation, enriched by the references is immediately available.
Inexpensive, quickly delivered and an endless source of information for the music lover keen to explore this wonderful repertoire.

Having compared these translations with others & appreciating the full (though pricey) publication I foresee lifelong use before passing it on to the university of my choice (CUC).

If you are looking for the sheet music version of the cantatas, look elsewhere, because this book contains just the lyrics, in both German and English. Amazon's description didn't make this clear (at least to me).
