Comment
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.
