Ich hatte viel Bekümmernis (I had much trouble in my heart),BWV 21, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He probably composed it in Weimar in 1713 for the third Sunday after Trinity, but first performed it after revision on 17 June 1714. A further revision occurred in the Köthen years, specifically in 1720 (a performance is thought to have occurred by 1722); a Leipzig performance occurred on 13 June 1723, and a final revision took place in Leipzig in 1731.
