According to RISM the composer of this work is Theodor Grünberger (1756-1820), the son of Johann Georg, however this is surely incorrect. The manuscript above is in the same handwriting (identified as Copyist Zelenka 1) as other items in the collection of the Dresden Hofkirche, and dating from the 1730's and 40's. The manuscript also contains an annotation from Jan Dismas Zelenka, who died in 1749, so it's not possible that this was written by a composer born in 1756. RISM's date of 1780 must therefore also be disregarded.
