Bach made ingenious use of compositions he had written earlier, blending them with new additions to form a perfect unity. Around a quarter of cantata ‘Wir danken dir, Gott, wir danken dir’, performed by the Netherlands Bach Society for All of Bach, consists of notes Bach had written earlier and likewise, the opening chorus ‘Wir dank dir, Gott’ is better known from the later Mass in B minor. Recorded for the project All of Bach on March 15th at St Martin’s Church, Groningen.
