Lobet den Herrn, alle seine Heerscharen, BWV Anh5 by Johann Sebastian Bach


'''''''''' (Praise ye the Lord, all ye of his great armies), '''BWV Anh 5''', is a cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. It is one of two cantatas which he composed for the twenty-fourth birthday of Leopold, Prince of Anhalt-K├Âthen on 10 December 1718. The music of the work is lost.

The librettist of the cantata was Christian Friedrich Hunold (Menantes). Although as a congratulatory work '''' is classed as a secular cantata rather than a church cantata, it appears to have been intended for performance in connection with a religious service (''''). The librettist used text from Psalm 119.
