Date of origin, Work history
um 1726
First performance on June 16, 1726? (Revised by J. C. Köpping); the last version, which can only be reconstructed through a transposed Basso continuo part, is in a shortened form and with a changed sequence of movements (12, 2–5, 7 and 10). Since the text of the first movement (= final choral BWV 194.2 and 194.3) is not known, the title of this last version is not definitively confirmed
