YT still working well on different machine and not yet sorted out Shevek's fix but have been distracted by watching Rudolf Lutz and J.S. Bach Foundation on decent TV screen plus amp fed by Toslink.  They are embarking on a rather ambitious project or 12 Cantatas per year but have some great soloists and excellent band with several strong keyboard performances.  BWV 35 would be a good place to start if you don't already know this version.  

I too have been a fan of George Malcolm.  Managed a recital many many years ago and look out for his recordings.  Will have a look at what you found.
