The cantata “ Allein zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ” BWV 33, composed for the Thirteenth Sunday after Trinity in 1724, is now the only vocal work by Bach for which the complete source material from the time of composition can be published in facsimile. It is one of the few works by Bach for which material from the first performance survives almost complete. But this is held in different locations on several continents: the composition score is preserved in the Scheide Library at Princeton , US , the performance parts in the Bach- Archiv Leipzig and the libretto of 1724 in the Russian National Library in St. Petersburg . All these components have now been published in a high-quality facsimile edition.
This valuable edition, with a slip case, offers both specialists and lovers of Bach’s music a unique insight into the composer’s working methods and the changing performing circumstances he encountered. Additional information is contained in a detailed commentary (in German and English) by Christoph Wolff and Peter Wollny .

BWV 33 belongs to the unique annual cycle of chorale cantatas composed by Bach in 1724/25, the second year of his Leipzig tenure. The cantata is one of the very few works where all the relevant source materials for the first performance have been preserved but are kept in various libraries throughout the world : The composing score is kept at the Scheide Library in Princeton, the vocal-instrumental performing parts at the Bach Archive Leipzig and the original libretto at the Russian National Library in St. Petersburg.

The facsimile offers invaluable insights into the composer's workings and the changing conditions for performances under his direction.

- Published to commorate the 325 th anniversary of Bach’s birth on 21 March 2010
