Date of origin, Work history
vor 1713, vermutlich um 1709-1711
Date of composition before 1713, probably around 1709–1711 (for the Mühlhausen council election?). Originally possibly in C major and instrumentation of Tromba I–III instead of Corno da caccia I–III, as indicated by Source D-CEp. Such a key/instrumentation combination is uncommon in Bach’s work and was very rare in the early 18th century
doubtful; Lit.: A. Dürr, in: Mf 30 (1977), p. 299ff.
