Little is known about the genesis of"Lobe den Herrn, meine Seele"(Praise thou the Lord, o my spirit BWV 143.

A transcription from the 19th century was for a long time considered the only source; the musical text of the"New Bach Edition"was based on this material. Recently however a copy of the score from 1762 has become available. It offers a more reliable musical text, rendering a complete revision of the cantata necessary.
On the basis of this new source, the work is presented here as part of the"New Bach Edition - Revised"in what is presumably its original form in C major with three trumpets. This orchestration is more typical of Bach's writing than the version for three horns in the surviving B-flat major version.

- Revised Urtext edition of the Weimar Cantata
- Based on the"New Bach Edition - Revised"
- Idiomatic piano reduction
