Biography Born in Liegnitz (now Legnica, Poland), Lehms studied at Leipzig and at the end of 1710 received his first post at Darmstadt, where he worked with the comosers Christoph Graupner and Gottfried Grünewald. Johann Sebastian Bach no doubt was familiar with his Das singende Lob Gottes, in einem Jahrgang andächtiger und Gottgefälliger Kirch-Music (variously dated 1711 or 1712) from which he set two Weimar cantatas in 1714 (BWV 54 & 199) and to which he returned 1725-6 durning his Leipzig period.
