Alternate version of Aria for Bass Ach! ich sehe, Itzt, da ich zur Hochzeit gehe (Mvt. 1) [4:14]
Alternate version of Chorale Ach, ich habe schon erblicket (Mvt. 6) [1:13]
Bach revived the piece during his first year as Thomaskantor in 1723, when he took the opportunity to add a slide trumpet in the opening movement to reinforce the viola and in the 6th movement to underpin the chorale melody.
