The edition I am using is the Simon Rowland-Jones version printed by Peters Editions. I feel this is by far the best version to date--it's clean, clear, and has some useful notes in the front.--Helen Callus (Strings, July 2010, "There's Always Room for Cello, Even on a Violist's Music Stand")

    Maybe this is biased because I'm a huge fan of Bach, but this arrangement is very good. I highly recommend it.

    I have always wanted to play these. But, since I don't play the cello it's difficult. Now that I have it I can't stop playing.
