Alternative title :Bist du bei mir
"Bist du bei mir" (If you are with me) BWV 508 is an aria in the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach. It was therefore attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach, but the melody is part of the Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel opera Diomedes, oder die triumphierende Unschuld that was performed in Bayreuth on November 16, 1718.

Although the opera score is lost, the aria had been part of the Berlin Singakademie music library and it too was considered lost in the Second World War, until it was rediscovered in 2000 in the Kiev Conservatory. The continuo part of BWV 508 is more agitated and continuous in its voice leading than the Stölzel aria; it is uncertain who provided it, as the entry in the Notebook is by Anna Magdalena Bach herself.

In an essay in the Bach-Jahrbuch 2002, Andreas Glöckner speculates that either she obtained the song from the inventory of the Leipzig Opera that had gone bankrupt in 1720, or that it simply was a favorite known to nearly everybody in Leipzig that was particularly suitable for Hausmusik.

Although originally created as an organ opera aria, I adapted this work for flute and piano.

The piece has become a very popular choice for wedding ceremonies and other such occasions.
