This melody first appeared with the text “Sanct Paulus die Corinthier” in the collection Bergkreyen, Nürnberg, 1551, No. 27, a scan of which is available here. The melody there, however, featured extensive melismas. Nikolaus Herman provided a simplified form of the melody with the same text in his Die Sontags Euangelia, Leipzig, 1560, p. K iiii b, a scan of which is available here. The present form of the melody is that given by Johann Herman Schein with the same text in his Cantional, 1628.
