The sequence of movements is like BWV 199.1, but transposed up by a whole tone. Movement 6 features Violoncello piccolo instead of Viola obligato. The first performance was on August 8, 1723. A subsequent performance took place on February 5, 1747, with a revised text for the memorial service of J. G. Francke in Halle, conducted by W. F. Bach (Wollny BJ 2013)
