11.5 minutes here, 15 minutes in a 1992 commercial recording on the Carus label. (There have been several other recordings including LPs as far back as 1962, soon after an early modern (1957) edition of the work in vocal score. Kistner published the full score ca.1933.
According to Snyder, Alles, was ihr tut was Buxtehude's "most popular work: it is the only one included in all three of the principal manuscript collections that transmit Buxtehude's vocal music".
