"D:u rr's text is intented for non-specialists and interested listeners, providing a well-informed and unpretentious description of each cantata. His focus is on the text and music, but his concise account of the occasions and recipients of these performances should stimulate thought about how Bach cultivated favour with local academics and with the Saxon electoral family."--Stephen Rose, Early Music
