According to C.R.Landon this work was publicly announced in the Breitkopf Catalog of 1769 as No.2 of "IX Cassation di Gius. Haydn" but must have been composed much earlier. He bases his edition on 3 manuscript copies from the Benedictine Monastery of Lambach, the Pachta Collection in the National Museum at Prague, and the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde, Vienna, the first of which he establishes as the most correct.
