Comment
The music is lost; it is not proved that it was composed by J. S. Bach; the libretto was written by the deputy headmaster of the Merseburg Stiftsgymnasium, Balthasar Hoffmann; title of the printed libretto: "Bey der Lob- und Trauerrede / auf die verwitwete / Herzoginn von Merseb. Hedwig, / im Jahre 1735"
