Date of origin, Work history
vor dem 16. April 1724
First performance on April 16, 1724; the autograph addition of movement 2 in the Flauto traverso part suggests a (not datable) subsequent performance. Movement 6 serves as a parody source for BWV 234/2 Gloria in Mass in A major, BWV 234. It is believed that the Flauto traverso part was not used in the first performance
