Bach wrote the cantata "Du wahrer Gott und Davids Sohn" as a test piece in connection with his application for the position of Cantor of St. Thomas. For reasons unknown, Bach considered it necessary to use a cornett and three trombones to support the chorus - possibly this suggests the poor state of the St. Thomas choir after Kuhnau's death. New revised edition. Score and parts available separately - see item CA.3102300.
