Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen

Today is one day after Christmas day. Though for Buddhists it is just an ordinary day (and in Thailand it’s a normal working day), the occasion merits some look at the Christian tradition and its very beautiful music. Here is Bach’s Cantata no. 51 – “Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen” – Praise ye the Lord in all lands.
