J.S. Bach's music has been the subject of study by theorists, music scholars, performers and music enthusiasts for centuries. Many study his works only to find that he was perhaps just as much a theologian as he was a composer and performer. Bach lived during the height of the Enlightenment movement, which greatly influenced his religious convictions and consequently, his sacred works. There is much speculation regarding his connections with orthodox Lutheranism and Pietism. This paper will examine how his affiliation with both groups is reflected in the music and text of his Cantata Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen. Just as there is much speculation regarding Bach's religious connections, there are many performance problems that arise when preparing an authentic performance of this cantata, including ornamentation, tempo, dynamics, articulation, and vibrato. These performance problems will also be addressed.
