Bist du bei mir, BWV508

composer
1718; remnant of lost opera Diomedes; appears in Johann Sebastian Bach's Anna Magdalena Notebook
author of text

 
In 1725, Bach found the time to keep a musical note-book together with his young second wife, Anna Magdalena, herself an accomplished singer. Bist du bei mir has its own BWV number (508), but in fact the tune was composed seven years earlier by Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel as part of his opera Diomedes, oder die triumphierende Unschuld, and Anna Magdalena might well have written a new accompaniment for the note-book.
