One of Bach´s most well-known and popular pieces, “Sheep may safely graze” comes from the secular cantata No 208, known as the “Hunt Cantata”. It was written for the birthday of Duke Christian of Sachsen-Weissenfels in 1713. This air is sung by the mythological figure of Pales, the goddes of crops and pastures, and we hear it here, for once, as Bach wrote it – for soprano accompanied by two recorders and strings.
