Erstaufführung 2. Februar 1727, Fassung in c für Bass (ursprünglich für Alt vorgesehen, siehe Schlüsselung und Eintrag in autographe Partitur zu Satz 1: „NB. Die Singstimme muß in den Bass transponirt werden.“). Wiederaufführung um 1746–1747 (Wasserzeichen, Schreiber Johann Christoph Altnickol, autographe Schriftformen in Stimmen Bass/Oboe), mit eigenständiger Orgelstimme und Violine ripieno. Neu ausgeschriebene Stimmen vielleicht aufgrund des Verleihs der Originalstimmen an den Bassisten Johann Polykarp Büchner (Dok. II Nr. 484 beziehungsweise LBB 3, Kommentar zu Brief 61). Wiederaufführung um 1747–1748 (autographe Schriftformen in Stimmen Oboe da caccia, Orgel).
First performance on February 2, 1727, version in C minor for Bass (originally intended for Alto, as indicated by the key signature and entry in the autograph score for the first movement: „NB. Die Singstimme muss in den Bass transponiert werden.“ | NB. The vocal part must be transposed to Bass). Subsequent performance around 1746–1747 (as evidenced by watermarks, scribe J. C. Altnickol, autograph handwriting styles in Bass/Oboe parts), with an independent obligato organ part and violin ripieno. Newly written parts possibly due to the loan of the original parts to the bassist J. P. Büchner (Dok. II Nr. 484 or LBB 3, commentary on Letter 61). Further performance around 1747–1748 (autograph handwriting styles in Oboe da caccia and organ parts)
