Gott, gib dein Gerichte dem Könige, BWV Anh3 by Johann Sebastian Bach

Summary

'''''''''' (God, give now thy judgement unto the King), '''BWV Anh 3''', is a lost cantata composed by Johann Sebastian Bach. Bach composed the work in Leipzig in 1730 for a civic occasion, the ''Ratswechsel'' (the inauguration of a new town council).

Five of the cantatas for the ''Ratswechsel'' which Bach wrote in Leipzig have survived.

The event was usually held annually in St. Nicholas Church. As it was a festive occasion, Bach would presumably have included trumpets in the orchestra for this lost cantata.
