Cantata BWV 193a
Ihr Häuser des Himmels, ihr scheinenden Lichter

German Title

Ihr Häuser des Himmels, ihr scheinenden Lichter

English Title

You towers of Heaven, you shining light (by Simon Crouch)

Event

Secular Cantata for the Name day of Frederick August I

Composed

Leipzig, 1727 | 1st performance: August 3, 1727 - Leipzig.
BWV 193a is the earlier version of BWV 193, but it is assumed, although not firmly substantiated, that BWV 193a may have been composed in its original form in Köthen.
The musical correspondences:
BWV 193a Mvt. 1 = BWV 193 Mvt. 1
BWV 193a Mvt. 7 = BWV 193 Mvt. 3
BWV 193a Mvt. 9 = BWV 193 Mvt. 5

Text

Christian Friedrich Henrici (Picander); Full text contained in “Picanders Ernst=Schertzhaffte und Satyrische Gedichte,” Part II, Leipzig, 1729 and 1734.
Picander’s text for BWV 193a may have been based on an earlier text by Christian Friedrich Hunold, which Bach set to music in Köthen where the original music for BWV 193 may have been composed.
