Comment
The text of this Köthen cantata is unknown, only the instrumental parts of the parody BWV 184 are preserved, which were probably used for the performance of BWV 184a. Presumably the sacred parody BWV 184 and the secular original BWV 184a are almost the same with one exception: instead of the chorale BWV 184/5 there was a recitative, and there are changes in the settings of the solo parts.

Libretto
unknown
