Just listening to Radio 3 (BBC classic music channel) and heard part of BWV 140. There was some bloke singing over the top of the most amazing cello tune. I've a feeling it comes up elsewhere without the singing, Bach being such a great recycler.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

"Wachet Auf"? Also called "Sleepers Awake." I'm not aware of him recycling that melody anywhere else.
