Hey, David,

Hope you found the info you needed. The work we played is from Cantata 78, but what we played is the second movement. You probably heard the first movement when you went to YouTube. What you're looking for probably labeled "Wir eilen mit schwachen" -- the first line. It's a soprano-alto vocal duet. One of my favorite Bach moments ever, even in the flute-oboe version we played on WQXR.
Thanks for you inquiry.

Jeff played a beautiful Bach cantata at approx. 7:30 a.m. I thought he identified it as No. 78, but when I found it on YouTube it sounds nothing like the recording he played. And by the time I got to the computer, the playlist had moved on and was no longer listing the selection played at 7:30. Any chance someone could tell me which Cantata it was? Thank you.
