St Mark Passion (the 1at Leipzig version) with the chorales "So gehst du nun" (BWV 500a, BC D 5b/5), "O hilf Christe" (BWV 1084 / 438‑>, BC D 5b/6) and "O Traurigkeit, o Herzeleid" (s. BWV deest, Serie II: 3);
in the 2nd Leipzig version (s. BWV deest, Serie II: 5) Bach also used movements of Handel's Brockes-Passion.

earlier the St. Mark passion was attributed to Reinhard Keiser, but probably it was written by Gottfried Keiser; J. S. Bach performed it in different versions; compare 2 further versions, which are independent from Bach's version (D-Gs Cod. Ms. phil. 84e: Keiser 1 and D-B Mus. ms. 11471);
