Bach Cantata - BWV 172


J.S. Bach composed his cantata Erschallet, ihr Lieder, erklinget, ihr Saiten! (Resound, ye songs, ring out, ye strings!) in 1714, shortly after being promoted to Konzertmeister of the royal court in Weimar, Germany. He later revised and performed it several times while in Leipzig.

It was written for Whit Sunday (the first day of Pentecost) and was first performed on May 20, 1714 at the court chapel of the Weimar palace.
