Cantata BWV 208a
Was mir behagt, ist nur die muntre Jagd!

Ref.

BWV 208a

German Title

Was mir behagt, ist nur die muntre Jagd!
Title of Text:
Frolockender Goetter=Streit | bey dem allerhöchsten | Nahmens=Feste | des | Allerdurchlauchtigsten und Groß- | mächtigsten | Königs in Pohlen und Chur-Fürsten | zu Sachsen, | in unterthänigster Ehrfurcht aufgeführet | in dem | collegio Musico | durch | J.S.B.

English Title

The merry hunt is all that I love! (by Richard Stokes)

Event

Cantata for the Nameday of Augustus III, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland

Composed

Originated from BWV 208, probably 1713. It is assumed that the music of both versions would have been almost nearly identical with only a few changes.
1st performance: August 3, 1740 with the Collegium Musicum wherever they held their concerts in Leipzig

Text

Revision by an unknown poet, based upon the original text (but different nevertheless) by Salomo Franck (1716) which Bach used for BWV 208. The differences between the two versions are given in detail in NBA KB I/37. Only mvts. 4,7,9,13 were left unchanged from the original. Mvts. 8 & 12 are completely re-written.

German-5 | Translations: English-1

Scoring

Music lost. Music very likely quite identical with BWV 208.
