Cleanup Of The Month/BachBoxSets

From MusicBrainz Wiki

One of the two cleanups running at the moment focuses on the large box sets that have been released for the works of Johann Sebastian Bach.

The first task is to complete the CSG Standard works list for Johann Sebastian Bach.

Then, there are several box sets which are in various states. Many are mis-titled and spread out over many release groups. The goal of this CotM is to get all of these box sets completely entered, with full release event information and as many ARs as possible (including release-release part-of-set ARs).
