Mmmh, it's really a great news!
But I wanted to get to know more about this new finding, and could
read, at the same time were found two other manuscripts, copied down by
Bach's student J. M. Schubart, perhaps from a copy by JSB. The two
manuscripts are two, till now unknown pieces of J. Pachelbel!
I think it's also an important discovery for the musichistory.

"Transmitted jointly with them are two additional fantasias on the
chorales "An Wasserflüssen Babylon" and "Kyrie Gott Vater in
Ewigkeit", which turn out to be hitherto unknown works by Johann
Pachelbel (1653-1706). The latter two tablatures are in the hand of
Bach's student Johann Martin Schubart (1690-1721) and probably derive
from a now lost Bach manuscript. Schubart became Bach's successor as
organist at the court of Weimar in 1717; from his estate the four
tablatures eventually found their way into the Herzogin Anna Amalia
Bibliothek."

("Zusammen mit ihnen sind zwei weitere handschriftliche
Choralphantasien über
,,An Wasserflüssen Babylon" und ,,Kyrie Gott Vater in Ewigkeit"
überliefert, bei denen
es sich um zwei bislang unbekannte Werke von Johann Pachelbel
(1653-1706) handelt. Diese beiden Orgeltabulaturen sind Abschriften des
Bach-Schülers Johann Martin Schubart (1690-1721), die vermutlich nach
einer von Bach geschriebenen Vorlage entstanden sind. Schubart trat
1717 die Nachfolge seines Lehrers als Weimarer Hoforganist an und aus
seinem Nachlass gelangten die drei Tabulaturen schließlich auf
unbekannte Weise in die Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek.")

Wow!!! Wunderbar! Danke Gott! I hope many more will be found! It was
not the St. Mark or St. Luke Passion but still a find is a find! It
shows the young teenage boy Bach was very musically advanced indeed. I
wonder if other previously undiscovered Bach mss. have been lost to
fire or just thrown out :-( Ugh I cannot bear to even ponder this
subject.

I assume you refer to mss. which may have survived unknown into modern
times and then been unkowingly disposed of. Because it is of course
well known that after the composer's death and until the time of the
Bach revival in the ninetenth century, many of his mss. went lost or
were thrown out or destroyed.
