  • There are at present two known sources for this work. The first is a manuscript in the Bibliothek der Stadt Kassel (see above for link). Title page: "Geistliche Hochzeit-Freude auss dem Propheten Jesaia cap. 61 ... auff dero hochzeitlichen Ehrentag den 23. Februarii Anno 1643. gehalten. à 6. ò[vero]. 3. Autore Johann Vierdanck, org. ad S. Mariaen in Stralsundt." It is unknown whether this manuscript is an autograph manuscript.
  • RISM's link for this work is for the Swedish Stadsbibliotek, Växjö. It is for a print published in 1643 by Jakob Jeger, and it is for soprano or tenor, 2 violins, continuo. There is no mention of the other vocal parts, nor of the trombone parts. Since 1643 is within Vierdanck's lifetime, it is assumed this version had his approval.
  • This page is tagged for both options, until such time as more is known about whether the manuscript at Kassel is by a copyist or by Vierdanck himself.
