Two labels corresponding to the Hofkirche catalogues of 1765 (damaged) and c1784 are kept with the score. The earlier (damaged) label: ... II | Fac[h] ... Lage | M[otett]o | O Sacru[m] Convivium | à 4 voci | VVni Viola e Basso | Partitura sola | ... Sigr Noack. Incipit (almost illegible). The second label must correspond with the entry in the missing Catalogo (c1784): Schranck No. II. | Lit: N. 4. Fach 7. Lage | Motetto | O Sacrum convivium à 4 voci | co’ VVni Viola ed Org. | Partitura sola | del Sigr Noack. Incipit.
The composer of two Ave Regina listings in this Catalogo (1765, see also II/N/6/8) attributed to ‘Noack‘ is named ‘Novak’ by Zelenka on the scores. Perhaps this is Jan František Novák (1706–1771) who succeeded Antonín Görbig (named Gerbich in this Catalogo of 1765) as choral director of the Metropolitan cathedral of Prague (St Vitus) in 1737. Although a relatively productive musician, Novák is regarded as being of little importance.
On Jan František Novák, see Marie Kostílková, ‘An Outline of the History of the St. Vitus’ Music Choir’, 95, and Horn (Hkm, 140–42). It is probable that Jan František Novák is the composer listed by Zelenka in his Inventarium as ‘Novari’ (and sometimes as ‘Anonymi’ and ‘N. N.’).
Incipit is given in Zekenka-Dokumentation, 59, Nr. 137b.
