Misc. Comments

Possibly excerpted in an 1845 publication; published by Garland Publications in 1986.

Libretto may be based on New Testament but as with other Passion Oratorios, often compiled by an author somewhat more contemporary with the composer. Do we know who?

Often dated to 1729/30, but apparently it was performed in Dresden (by Bach?) in 1721 (see Bach Cantatas page discussions for BWV 1088), so that can't be!- though it may have been revised in 1730.
