This setting comprises an accompanied recitative and da capo aria. Horn (Hkm, 129), suggests this work is a parody of a secular cantata.
Eitner’s entry (1900) suggests that two copies were held: one in the Catholic court church (score and parts); one score in the royal collection (the example in Zelenka’s hand: D-Dl, Mus. 2156-E-1).
Incipit given in Zelenka-Dokumentation, 48, Nr. 29.
A source with the Catalogo label of c1784 is held in the Russian State Library in Moscow. The label in Carl Uhle’s hand, reads: Lit A. Schranck No: I | 1. Fach 6. Lage | Cantata de V. Sacram. | O quam Suavis | à Tenore Solo | co’ VVni Viola ed Org. | Partitura e parti cav: | del Sigr. Ariosti | incipit. An oval stamp, which may be that of the BIBLIOTHECA MUSICA REGIA, is almost obliterated.
