Paused for a moment, and I missed the name of the gospel-inflected selection that was played in this segment - something around Hallelujah..?

Can anyone post the identity of that piece? Thanks!

Also, a suggestion for listeners... try the Goldberg Variations on harpsichord, closer to the original conception of Bach...

Simone Dinnerstein's "Goldberg Variations" is one of my two favorite classical recordings. A brilliant musician.
