Misc. Comments

Publication: 1867 - Griepenkerl edition.

Composition: estimates ca. 1707. Schulenberg (Volume 3, p.65 et seq.) also regards an early date as more likely, noting that there is no possibility here that in honorem means in memoriam here (and that the subtitle may derive from the copyists, e.g. Kellner, in any event. No autograph manuscript seems to exist?)
