May 26*: Trinity Sunday

Holy_Spirit_as_Dove_(detail)The first Sunday after Pentecost is always Trinity Sunday, celebrating the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:19-20

The following video is BMV 129, or “Gelobet sei der Herr, mein Gott,” meaning “Praised be the Lord, my God.” Johann Sebastian Bach composed this cantata in 1726, specifically for Trinity Sunday.
