As in all cantatas for St. Michael the chorale cantata "Lord God, we praise thee all of us" BWV 130 from 1724 is a magnificent composition. Not only in the opening chorus and the final chorale do the three trumpets and timpani play a role, but the first aria “In hell the serpent, hot with hate" is even accompanied solely by trumpets, timpani and continuo. The second aria, “Thou, of cherubim the master", brings an unexpected contrast in which, besides the tenor and continuo, on a solo flute is heard. The original set of parts were separated from each other in the 19th century and today are scattered throughout the world. For the first time, some of the parts were taken into consideration in preparing this edition.
