Indeed, and in that context it is worth linking to a few thoughts of the conductor of the concerts, Ambros Ott, which he pens under the title "Oh Lord, receive this gift of a somersault"

The German is far too flowery for me to translate eloquently, but google translate will give you the gist.

Haha! Wonderful :)
He refers to the somersault effect of the music, and Zelenka dedicating it as a gift to God in thanks for his good health.
