Adaptation of the motet "Tristis est anima mea", attributed to Johann Kuhnau. The motet "Der Gerechte kommt um" comes down to us as part of the Passion cantata "Ein Lammlein geht und tragt die Schuld" by Carl Heinrich Graun, into which movements by various other composers, including Bach and Telemann, were also later inserted. According to the research of Diethard Hellmann, editor of this edition, the motet was originally an a cappella composition by Johann Kuhnau with the text "Tristis est anima mea", which then was adapted-most likely by Bach-with a new text and the addition of instrumental parts.
