Date of origin, Work history
vor dem 27. Juni 1730
First performance on June 27, 1730, at St. Nikolai on the third day of the celebrations for the anniversary of the Augsburg Confession, in a version of BWV 1139.1 (see text print Picander 1732, page 73: Cantaten auf das Jubel-Feste der | der übergebenen Augspurgischen Con- | fession 1730 [Cantatas for the Jubilee Festival of the Augsburg Confession 1730]; following are the text prints of BWV 190.2 and BWV 120.3, which were performed on the two preceding days). The music is lost, but Bach’s authorship is evidenced by parodic relations to BWV 1139.1 and by a footnote in the text print Sicul 1731 I, page 1126 (Von dem Cantore oppidano, Herr Johann Sebastian Bachen, sonst Anhalt-Cöthenischen Capellmeister, componirt [Composed by the town cantor, Mr. Johann Sebastian Bach, otherwise Anhalt-Cöthen’s Capellmeister]), which also refers to the cantatas for the three festive days.
Sequence of movements (according to text print by Picander 1732) and relationships to parodies:
1. [Coro]: Wünschet Jerusalem Glück, siehe BWV 1139.1/1
