Talking about Switched-On Bach II, American Record Guide in 2000 said "Switched-On Bach II has the Badinerie, Minuet, and Bourrée from Bach's orchestral suite in B minor, the Inventions in A and A minor, 'Sheep May Safely Graze,' four little pieces from Anna Magdalena's Notebook (including a heart-rending 'Bist du bei mir'), and Brandenburg 5."
