Just found (and ordered) this recording as a DVD on Amazon (on the Deutsche Gramofon Archiv label) about £10 UK price including P&P (S&H to the colonials) Main display shows price as £19+ but small print says 34 new available from £8.83, click on that.

The DVD includes an interview with John Elliot Gardiner about the work.

I adore this recording (I refer to the CD set) as well. Something so wonderful about the basilica acoustics, isn't there?
