See Stockigt in ‘After Six Weeks’ where it is suggested that this was one of two masses prepared by Zelenka for Maria Josepha’s churching ceremony (Kirchgang/Ingressus) held at Hubertusburg (1.11.1739) following the birth of Saxon Prince Clemens Wenceslaus (b 28.9.1739). The mass performed on that occasion, however, has not been verified.
Horn (Hkm, 175) notes that Zelenka’s revisions to this mass concern instrumentation, performance details including dynamics and articulation, and occasional rhythmic alterations. Also see, ‘Die wichtigsten Schreiber’, 165), where the principal copyist is identified as ZS 2 together with Zelenka and ZS 1.
Performance parts are entered into this Catalogo (1765) as a work by Zelenka (see listing III/Z/11/2).
Incipits are given in Zelenka-Dokumentation, 48–9, Nr. 31.
