How can one set of music have such sublime and mundane music side by side?

Baroque Choral Music Filter: I love the kind of baroque choral music with multiple parts going on simultaneously or in very close interaction, providing a gorgeous complex polyphonic tapestry that transcends language and sends me to heaven (as JS intended!). I very much dislike the soloists droning on in German against the orchestra. Which albums have more of the former?

I have a ton of Bach instrumental music, but the only choral CD is have is this one
. Some of the tracks, the more polyphonic as described above, are just sublime. The rest (most, even) that are soloist-based just leave me completely cold.
Can anyone point me in the direction of the former, either Bach or other similar composers?
