8-10 minute Baroque-Early Classical work

Due to some late breaking performance opportunities for my choir I have to change my fall semester programming.
I am looking for an 8-10 minute Baroque, late Baroque or early Classical work for SATB university soloists and choir that can be reasonably performed with keyboard accompaniment. I am mulling over some selections but I thought I'd ask for some help. I can't afford strings for this so a good keyboard reduction (not continuo) needs to be available. Some of the European publishers offer some great works but they are pricey, may not have a keyboard reduction and I am afraid I won't get the music in time for this fall so easily obtainable vocal scores are a must.
 I am looking at works by Hasse, Heinichen, M. Haydn, Galuppi, Jommelli, etc. I could do excerpts from larger works as well.
Any suggestions?

You might try the Galant Music Project--ChoralNet's own Tom Tropp is an editor. I am sure there are some things that fit your criteria.   And I love, love, love Galuppi!

If you have exactly 3 string players available, Telemann's Laudate Jehovam comes to me (perhaps a bit shorter than what you're after). 
Are the Mozart and Haydn Te Deum settings too "modern" for your purposes?  While those and the single-movement Mozart Regina Coeli setting are certainly better with the original orchestration, I think all can be done justice with keyboard accompaniment.  Perhaps Martini's Domine ad adjuvandum me (also a bit too short, perhaps?)
