This new box set features 222 CDs

When it comes to measuring the biggest box sets ever release, there probably aren’t many larger than a new collection that commemorates the 333rd anniversary of the birth of Johann Sebastian Bach.

All of his works are covered (280 hours by more than 50 performers), all of which are dissected in three hardbound books. (Read a complete description at The Guardian.)

How much? Not cheap at £399 (a shade over $700 Canadian), but you do get a lot for your money.
