The aria "Bist du bei mir" from the opera "Diomedes, oder die triumphierende Unschuld" by G.H. Stölzel, arranged for string quartet.

"Bist du bei mir" was long incorrectly attributed to J.S. Bach due to its presence in the "Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach". The melody is actually an opera aria by Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel, though the continuo line differs somewhat in the Bach Notebook version. The arrangement is based on the the 1920 Herman Roth realization.
