Three more copies at Universität der Künste, Berlin; Bach-Archiv, Leipzig; ?-sterreichische Nationalbibliothek, Vienna (ex Hoboken). Date after Schmieder; other sources date the work to 1834. The full score was first published, by Simrock, in 1828. The full score of the opening chorus had been published much earlier in part 2 of Friedrich Wilhelm Marpurg's treatise Abhandlung von der Fuge (Berlin: Haude and Spener, 1754). One of Bach's four "Lutheran" masses consisting of Kyrie and Gloria only. Arnold Schering's opinion that Bach composed these masses for Count Franz Anton von Sporck (1662-1738), whose residence was in Lissa (Lysa), Bohemia, has been rejected by more recent Bach scholarship. The six movements are based on movements from earlier cantatas: Kyrie after opening chorus of BWV 179 (1723); Gloria in excelsis after opening chorus of BWV 79 (1725); Gratias agimus after fifth movement of BWV 138; Domine Deus after fifth movement of BWV 79 (1725); Quoniam after third movement of BWV 179 (1723); Cum sancto Spiritu after the opening chorus of BWV 17 (1726).
