Probably the Sinfonia and the aria no. 5 are arrangements of the lost model for the Concert for Harpsichord BWV 1053/1 and 1053/2; different setting in NBA: oboe I and oboe II changed into oboe d'amore because of pitch.
Christoph Birkmann; mvt. 7: stanza 3 from 'Nun bitten wir den Heiligen Geist‘ by Martin Luther (1524); libretto printing: Birkmann 1728
