it is possible that this is a canon for J. P. Kirnberger from his
his "Stammbuch"; to this only fragmentary preserved source (D-B: Mus.ms.theor. Kirnberger, J. Phil. 2) it is said "that one of the first (lost) leaves was Bach's memorial leaf" (Seiffert 1889,
p. 364). F. W. Marpurg took canons from the book, which was later also used by Kirnberger as a composition book (see Marpurg 1754, Tab. XXXVII, Fig. 3 = Dok. III Nr. 655).
