I just finished a brass quintet arrangement of “Bist du bei mir” from Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel’s opera Diomedes. The piece had been mistakenly attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach due to its inclusion in the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach, but this was (much) later discovered to be incorrect, although the voice leading in the versions typically performed today was not actually Stölzel’s writing. This is, unfortunately, still a mystery due to the fact that Anna Magdalena entered “Bist du bei mir” into the notebook herself.
