Bach's chorale cantata 'Lobe den Herren, den mächtigen König der Ehren' BWV 137, has long been, thanks to its popular chorale text, one of the most frequently-performed works by the Kantor of St. Thomas's. Unlike the cantatas in the cycle of chorale cantatas, the text of the hymn is not only used in the opening and final chorales, but Bach uses it in all the movements.

The new edition reflects the current state of research and presents this work in Carus's clear-to-read music setting.
