Cantata BWV 148
Bringet dem Herrn Ehre seines Namens

Ref.

BWV 148

German Title

Bringet dem Herrn Ehre seines Namens

English Title

Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name (by Richard Stokes)

Event

Cantata for the 17th Sunday after Trinity
Readings: Epistle: Ephesians 4: 1-6; Gospel: Luke 14: 1-11
Musical Context: Motets & Chorales for 17th Sunday after Trinity

Composed

Leipzig, 1723 (or 1725)
1st performance: September 19, 1723 (?) - Leipzig
2nd performance: September 23, 1727 (?) - Leipzig
Dürr (English) as early as Sep 19, 1723? No source mentions any 1724 date. BWV reports a repeat performance on Sep 19, 1723 or Sep 23, 1727 (the latter appears impossible, see below). Spitta had chosen Sep 23, 1725 (a date still considered as a serious possibility by the NBA KB and perhaps a better date than Sep 19, 1723). The Picander text was published in 1725. Bach and Picander’s collaboration began Feb 23, 1725. Küster also indicates a possible performance on the 17th Sunday after Trinity in 1726 sharing the service with BWV 49. Both the NBA KB and Kster (probably basing his opinion on the NBA KB) point out that a performance on the 17th Sunday after Trinity in 1727 could not have occurred because of the period of national mourning (Landestrauer) that was in effect at that time.

Text

Psalm 29: 2 (Mvt. 1); Anon or Johann Heermann (Mvt. 6); after Christian Friedrich Henrici (Picander) (Mvts. 2-5)
