The solo cantata “ Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen ” , written around 1730 for the 15th Sunday after Trinity, 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.
