Cantata BWV 120
Gott, man lobet dich in der Stille


Ref.:

BWV 120; BC B 6

German Title:

Gott, man lobet dich in der Stille

English Title:

God, One praised Thee in the stillness of Zion (by W. Murray Young)

Event:

Inauguration of the Leipzig Town Council.
The centenary celebration of the Augsburg Confession, June 26, 1730. Two months later repeated as the Ratswahl cantata. Later, in 1733, Bach borrowed from it for a wedding cantata BWV 120a Herr Gott, Beherrscher aller Dinge (Lord God, Ruler of all things), which is incomplete in its music, but complete in its text (Source: W. Murray Young)

Composed:

Leipzig, 1730 (Young); 1728 or 1729 (Stokes); Accoring to KB I/32.2 - c. 1742ff. (the previous sources are now outdated) (BWV 120, BWV 120a & BWV 120b were all adapted from a lost Köthen original).
1st performance: 1729 or earlier - Leipzig
2nd performance: August 27, 1742 ? - Leipzig

Text:

Mvt. 1: Psalm 65: 1; Mvts. 2-5: Anon [probably Christian Friedrich Henrici (Picander); C.S. Terry suggests Christian Weiss, Sr.]; Mvt. 6: Martin Luther, part of verse 4 of Herr Gott, dich loben wir [The German Tedeum], 1529 (Wackernagel, I, #212)
