Comment
EZ vor dem 20. Mai 1714; Weimar version in C major (= choir pitch; standard pitch = D major); about pitch see NBA I/13 (score), p. Vf. This version is not fully reconstructable. The parts of S, A, T, B, violin II, oboe and Basso contino (and perhaps also flute) are lost. Lit.: Dürr St 2, p. 73;
Probably further performance of this version in Köthen between 1717 and 1722.
Lyrics
probably Salomon Franck; mvt. 2: John 14:23; mvt. 6: stanza 4 from ‘Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern’ by Philipp Nicolai (1599)
Edition
