Op. 114 is NOT identical to Op. 113, No. 6. Op. 114 adds text (beginning with "Empfanget uns!") to what had been a purely instrumental closing section in Op. 113, No. 6. The revision with added text (Op. 114) is connected to the recycling of music from Op. 113 for Die Weihe des Hauses (which produced entirely new music, Op. 124 and WoO 98). The edition of Op. 114, No. 207a in the Breitkopf Complete Works Edition, contains the added text, while Op. 113, No. 6 in Breitkopf Complete Works No. 207 does not.
