Comment
EZ vor dem 12. Januar 1729; Homage cantata for Duke Christian of Weißenfels. Only soprano part survived (probably for A. M. Bach as singer). Movements 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 are reconstructable from BWV 210.2. Autographic text corrections and additions in soprano part for performances prior to 1740/41: for Count Joachim Friedrich von Flemming and for unknown benefactors.
About the history of origins s. H. Tiggemann in: BJ 1994, p. 7-22.
