||A Gregorian chant from the 9th century (Benedictus es domine deus) is quoted between bars 209 and 338. The cantata was commissioned by the vicar Gustav Durchman to celebrate the Sexticentennial (600th anniversary) of the Old Church in Isokyrö, which turned out to be premature as recent research has revealed that the church is in fact much younger (built around 1520 or 1530). As there has never been an organ in the Old Church, the organ part in the premiere was played by a harmonium.
