Misc. Comments

Bach's authorship is doubted by Philipp Spitta and Günter Haußwald; they suggested the piece was possibly composed by Johann David Heinichen, but without any substantial argument or musicological proof. (See W. Schmieder, BWV (1990), p. 546 & 547). However, from a stylistic point of view, the piece sounds much more classical than baroque and could have been composed during the late 18th c. or the beginning of the 19th c.
