About Cantata No. 51

Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen ("Exult in God in every land" or "Shout for joy to God in all lands") BWV 51, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. The work is Bach's only church cantata scored for a solo soprano and trumpet. He composed it for general use (ogni tempo), in other words not for a particular date in the church calendar, although he used it for the 15th Sunday after Trinity: the first known performance was on 17 September 1730 in Leipzig. The work may have been composed earlier, possibly for an occasion at the court of Christian, Duke of Saxe-Weissenfels, for whom Bach had composed the Hunting Cantata and the Shepherd Cantata.
