Gramophone (Vol./#-p.): 72/860-82 (January 1995)
Tracks - are from the very first recording on historic instruments made by Gustav Leonhardt and Nikolaus Harnoncourt (as per Omega Vanguard CD booklet). Leonhardt said: "Deller was superb, we were atrocious"; it is partly true but this LP was considererd as a "cult" recording, praised by many; this re-issue appeared in the north american catalogue (june 1997) after being "no longer available " for more than 30 years. If you want to purchase only one Deller's CD, for Deller only, purchase this one without the slightest hesitation. But, if you want to purchase only one copy of cantata no. 54, then purchase the Gould/Oberlin's video.
