It's a public secret that Bach didn't write 'Bist du bei mir', an aria from the Notenbüchlein für Anna Magdalena Bach. The composer was Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel and the aria with the full title "Bist du bei mir geh ich mit Freuden" was part of his opera Diomedes, Oder: die Triumphierende Unschuld. That doesn't mean the music is inferior because it isn't Bach. Stölzel was a very fine composer. Especially his Brockes Passion shows his quality as a composer, just as this fine melody of Bist du bei mir. It's uncertain who wrote the basso continuo part in the Notenbüchlein, since it differs from the original orchestration in Stölzel's opera.

Dutch organist Dick Koomans arranged this aria for organ into a sarabande version. A very fine arrangement which fits this organ like a glove.
