Are you also aware of the site http://www.bach-cantatas.com/? 5 entries for "post copulationem" appear.

In following this thread, I went to the Bach-Gesellschaft edition (the
digital version available on DVD), and sure enough, in the wedding
cantata section are three chorale settings of "Was Gott tut," "Sei
Lob...", and "Nun Danket..." (BWV 250-252). Full instrumentation is
specified doubling the 4-part voices.
I have to admit that what first sent me there was Doug's eyebrow-raising
heading for the second half of the Cantata 197, "Post copulationem."
Alas, the BG edition doesn't seem to have this ... apparently a more
up-to-date edition is the one that contains this ;-)
