Where did you see this, Brian?
The download? Qobuz a few months ago. Obviously worth looking to see if the price is still low, if you have an account.

It's $8.99 now, but this is still a damn good deal:

I didn't get this because it seemed too expensive. A fools bargain.



Acquired as a lossless download.

That's a big haul of classical music for a guy who's burnt out on classical music  ;D I'm interested in Kuhnau and have also looked at those discs with his cantatas in the past. Curious to know what you think. I know you're a big fan of German high  baroque music, so I value your opinion.

It's been a while since this bug with the ASIN tag started.

If you click on the yellow Click to Buy imitation post-it, the Amazon item page will open in a new tab as it's supposed to.

Thanks, yes, it seems to be the only way to open them for me. At least they do work.

I wish people would stop using the ASIN tags. They don't work and it's more work for others because each time you want to see the image, it opened up a new window. Anyway, I won't even bother seeing what all Poju bought unless he wants to retag them.

That's a big haul of classical music for a guy who's burnt out on classical music  ;D I'm interested in Kuhnau and have also looked at those discs with his cantatas in the past. Curious to know what you think. I know you're a big fan of German high  baroque music, so I value your opinion.

Well, this is a way to do something about the burnout. I will probably listen to these slowly taking months, a couple of CDs a month. The burnout is more about the way I approach classical music than the amount of listening. I want to find the correct way again, make classical music fun again rather than a burden.

Kuhnau deserves to be seen as more than just a predesessor of J. S. Bach. Even I am new to Kuhnau, but the last decade has been kind of a "Kuhnau revival" so now there is a way to actually explore this composer beyond a few works here and there. Imo the best German baroque cantatas before J. S. Bach were wrote by Nikolaus Bruhns followed by Buxtehude. Tunder's Cantatas (those I have explored so far) don't have the amazing expressiveness and colour of Bruhns. Tunder seems more traditional, but the music appears technically skilled. There is something in these Cantatas that have clearly influenced J. S. Bach and this explains why Bach's Cantatas don't remind more the Cantatas of Buxtehude/Bruhns.

Overall the availability of German baroque between Schütz and Bach has exploded during the last 2 decades. Just 20 years ago it was pain in the ass to find recordings of these composers, but nowadays that's not the case when label's like CPO are releases these composers like there was no tomorrow! I could have made 2-3 bigger order easily. :P

Oh. It works for me. The "middle" pic, Weckmann I suppose is differently linked. My order contains:

Kuhnau - Cantatas 3 - CPO
Kuhnau - Cantatas 4 - CPO
Kuhnau - Cantatas 5 - CPO
Fasch - Missa in G - CPO
Weckmann - Complete Organ Works - CPO
J. S. Bach - Motets - CPO
J. S. Bach - Keyboard Concertos 1 - Hewitt - Hyperion
Didone abbandonata - Cantatas and Arias - CPO

I wasn't aware of this bug...  ???

How can one click the post-it imitation, if one doesn't see the pics at all?

I'm sorry if I'm doing somethign wrong. I have been doing this for years. What is this "retag" you talk about?

For me the ASIN tags work fine (using Safari 15). The only problem I have is with Amazon not having picture files of every item so that's why I had to "hotlink" the Weckmann.

Nothing wrong with the posting that I can see. All of the images appear using either Safari or Firefox.

As Erato pointed out, it's probably the browser I'm using: Google Chrome. I stopped using Safari weeks ago after Apple had issued an update for it, which has caused it to act up on certain sites, especially financial ones and eBay (for some reason). Here's the kicker: they offered another Safari update to hopefully fix the bugs, but the browser is still acting up. Nothing I can do about it, but I've been enjoying Chrome.
