Misc. Comments

Described in RISM as a chorale or chorale-setting (chorale by Luther) based on their two copies at the Berlin State Library, which is much closer and more accurate than cantata (which usually though not always had more than the one movement, for one thing; this might have been the opening or closing movement of a cantata...) does describe it as a cantata, however - will go with that. Published as part of the Opella nova - if this was a group of cantatas and published as such, that would explain the tagging... (actually, it seems to have been published as "Opella nova, geistlicher konzerten"... hrm. Will have to look more closely...)
