Sacred cantata (Michaelmas [29 September])

B solo, S, A, T, B, trumpet I, trumpet II, trumpet III, timpani, oboe I, oboe II, violin I, violin II, viola, basso continuo
Date of origin
September 1729? (vgl. BWV 201)
Apart from 14 bars of the first movement (title: "Concerto") the music is lost; the libretto ist unknown;
the first word of the beginning was "Man" (compare BWV 149 "Man singet mit Freunden vom Sieg"); because of that M. Helms assumed that this dismissed movement was planned as a new movement for BWV 149; the reason why it was not finished is unknwon, instead of this movement Bach used the final choir of BWV 208 ("Jagdkantate") as first movement of BWV 149; Lit.: Spitta II, p. 277.
