BWV 248a is a church cantata composed by Johann Sebastian Bach. Bach wrote this work in 1733 or 1734, likely to honour a Saxon royal, possibly to welcome the new elector to Leipzig. The score and text of the piece is now lost, but part was borrowed for the Christmas Oratorio.[1] Some sources give its title as Jauchzet, frohlocket!.[2]
