In 1725 J.S. Bach composed the cantata BWV79 “Gott, der Herr, is Sonn' un Schild” for the celebration of the Reformation. Originally written for three vocal soloists, choir, and orchestra, Cantata No. 79 is partially based on the well-known hymn Now Thank We All Our God, the melody of which is attributed to Martin Rinckart. This arrangement for concert band by Robert van Beringen combines part of the first movement (Coro) with an ensemble from the third movement (Choral).
