Sprinkled all through the cantatas, chorale settings, really everywhere, are these Bach movements that slow down eternity.
I think I enjoy the piano transcriptions the most because supremely talented pianists over the years, Rummel, Busoni, Godowsky, Isadore Philip, spotlight these passages and take full advantage of their startling beauty.
If I was forced to listen to only one composer, Bach.
The ten volume set on Hyperion is truly wonderful even while it is not complete.

I don't have that Plowright volume that you show however. There are also a couple of good Bach piano transcription recordings on the Naxos label - I especially enjoy this one:
ANgela Newitt's disc of Bach transcriptions is really good. I like it much better than her "regular" Bach.
I think she is a much more interesting musician AWAY from the Baroque period.
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds,
