Comment:Weimar version in C major (= choir pitch; standard pitch = D major); about pitch see NBA I/13 (score), p. Vf. This version is not fully reconstructable. The parts of S, A, T, B, violin II, oboe and Basso contino (and perhaps also flute) are lost. Lit.: Dürr St 2, p. 73;
Probably further performance of this version in Köthen between 1717 and 1722.
