Thanks to the false attribution to Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 219) of the cantata for St. Michael's Day Siehe- es hat uberwunden der Lowe TVWV 1:1328 by Georg Philipp Telemann, one of Telemann's works experienced an unusually early renaissance. In 1884 the cantata was published in the Bach-Gesamtausgabe (Complete Edition) and from then onwards enjoyed some fame as an "apocryphal" Bach cantata. Alfred Durr was able to identify the work as a composition by Telemann in the 1950s.
