Wouldn't be more than 25.  Actually, a lot less.  I have to leave room for a few WTC's and recordings of other composers.

As long as it's Bach!

I'm looking forward to seeing more lists.  Seems to me that this exercise might be helpful to newbies seeking recommendations re. music to investigate, to forum newcomers (new to CM or not) getting a handle on members' tastes and predilections, and also to old-timers hoping to discover unsuspected gems among the well-worn well as being surprised sometimes by others' picks, like Don's Mahler 4 and Granados, or MI's Bantock.
