Misc. Notes Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin (D-B): Mus. ms. Bach P 1063. This manuscript is thought to preserve a version earlier than the final, dedicated version, although the deviation from the final version is rather small. This earlier version was the basis of the opening Sinfonia of the cantata Ich liebe den Höchsten von ganzem Gemüte, BWV 174.
