You mention the interpolation of a number of motets. It sounds to me as if what you had on that recording was the version of the Magnificat in E flat major. This is a different version of the more commonly performed Magnificat in D major BWV 243. The E flat version was designed for use at Christmas and Bach inserted between some of the movements of the Magnificat four short choral movements with texts appropriate to Christmas.
So if you search for the Magnificat in E flat major BWV 243a then if the recording in question is still available you should be able to track it down.
