An insteresting case of self-borrowing. Bach took music from his own Mass in B-minor (BWV 191/1 corresponds to the Gloria in excelsis Deo, BWV 191/2 to the Domine Deus, BWV 191/3 to the Cum sancto spiritu) for use in this latin cantata written to celebrate the Peace of Dresden (which ended the 2nd Silesian war). It was first performed on Christmas day, 1745. Newly engraved carefully edited vocal score based on the Bach Gessellschaft edition.
