Cantata for the 15th Sunday after Trinity, BWV 4: Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen (Praise ye God throughout creation).

For Soprano solo, Trumpet, Violin (2), Viola and Basso continuo.

Urtext edition. Vocal score edited by Matthias Wendt and arranged by Martin Focke. Text in German and English. Orchestral material available separately.

This solo cantata, written around 1730, is one of Bach's best-known cantatas. The scoring for solo soprano, trumpet, strings and continuo is unique amongst Bach's cantatas and has parallels with Italian composers of the period.

The enduring popularity of the work is due to the clear and succinct formal structure and not least to the virtuoso trumpet part and soprano arias, in which the soloists can demonstrate their total mastery. The cantata is published in a vocal score based on the "New Bach Edition" with an idiomatic straightforward piano reduction by Martin Focke.
