JS Bach: Cantata 129 ‘Gelobet sei der Herr, mein Gott’

In the atmospheric surroundings of St Michael at the North Gate – Oxford’s oldest building – experience one of JS Bach’s powerful Reformation Cantatas presented as part of Lutheran Vespers.

The Lutheran Vespers with JS Bach’s Cantata 129 Gelobet sei der Herr, mein Gott (Praised be the Lord, my God) is part of the performance of all four Reformation Day cantatas. Although this chorale cantata was first premièred on Trinity Sunday 8 June 1727 in Leipzig, it was again performed on Reformation Day. The creed-like structure with the praise of the trinity together with the festive character of the music setting made it the perfect fit for the Reformation Day celebrations. The cantata is festively scored and ends in a chorale fantasia, like the Christmas Oratorio.
