William Hoffman wrote (June 8, 2016):
Fine work that I am only beginning to navigate. Besides W. Neumann Cantata Hanbook, there are other fine indices on the cantatas, especially texts, and late Martin Petzoldt's Kommentar, Vols. 1 and 2 . I'm looking forward to Vols. 3 and 4, rest of vocal music. Luke Dahn's chorales are great new work too. So much remains.
