1 Cantata: Lobet Gott in seinen Reichen (Ascension Oratorio), BWV 11

2 Cantata: Ich elender Mensch, wer wird mich erlösen, BWV 48

3 Dramma per musica: Hercules auf dem Scheidewege: Lasst uns sorgen, lasst uns wachen, BWV 213

This work was composed in 1733 to mark the birthday of the young Saxon prince Friedrich Christian on September 5, 1733. Although considered a dramma per musica because of its secular nature and dramatic stance, it is usually classified as a secular cantata. Warren Stewart edited this version for Magnificat Baroque in 2002.
