Johann Sebastian Bach: Cantata Lobe den Herren BWV 137 – Netherlands Bach Society, Peter Dijkstra, Miriam Feuersinger, Alex Potter, Thomas Hobbs, Peter Kooij

Bach set clear limits for himself in ‘Lobe den Herren, den mächtigen König der Ehren’, performed by the Netherlands Bach Society for All of Bach. He used the complete unaltered text of a well-known hymn by Joachim Neander. The original hymn has five verses and the cantata has the same number of movements. There are no recitatives. Such a piece is also referred to as a chorale cantata. Recorded for the project All of Bach on February 18th 2017 at the Walloon Church, Amsterdam.
