Just wanted to recommend this Bach cantata (no. 61) to anyone who hasn't heard it. The music is peaceful and almost longing -- just incredibly beautiful.

(Not sure how I missed it until now -- apparently it was recorded a lot in the 90s!)

Do you know where I can find a choir version? I've only heard the organ version, or Busoni's piano reduction.

Played this on my exam last year (the Busoni transcription). BEAUTIFUL piece..

Buy a copy of the Bach Cantata No 61. It's only $5.95 here :

I'm sure you can get it just as reasonably priced (equivalent) in Belgium.
