This nine-movement psalm composition allows all the participants to shine, in some cases with rich virtuosity: the string ensemble in the opening "Sonata"; the solo singers and choir in the chaconne-like first vocal movement, "Singet dem Herrn"; also the solo singers in two duets (alto + tenor, soprano + alto), an alto solo and an extensive bass solo; the choir in two further movements-a fugue on the 6th verse of the psalm "Es stehet herrlich und prachtig fur ihm" and the concluding movement in two sections, "Betet an den Herrn," which ends with a brilliant fugue on "Es furchte ihn alle Welt." This is a festive sacred work suitable for many occasions (including weekday Epiphany psalm services and for services on the 4th Sunday after Easter). The present edition presents the source material in revides form, transcribed into current editorial and performance usage.
