The original manuscript of this cantata is lost. Parts of this cantata can be found in BWV 66: mvt. 1 = BWV 66/2, mvt. 1 = BWV 66/3, mvt. 3 = BWV 66/4, mvt. 4 = BWV 66/5, mvt. 8 = BWV 66/1; the other movements (5-7) are lost. Presumably the setting is the same as in BWV 66. The vocal soloists stated in Hunold's libretto are called "Glückseligkeit Anhalts" and "Fama". Lit.: Smend Kö, p. 178-183.
C. F. Hunold ("Auserlesene und theils noch nie gedruckte Gedichte [...]", Part II, Nr. 12, Halle 1719, pp. 84-90); libretto printing: Menantes 1719
