In 1733, Bach composed a Missa of Kyrie and Gloria which he later incorporated in his Mass in B minor. He presented the manuscript to Augustus III, who was King of Poland, Grand Duke of Lithuania and Elector of Saxony. It was a bid to persuade the monarch to appoint him as Royal Court Composer, which he did three years later.
