Backing Track Previews
Original Key: Bb Major MP3
A beautiful and well-known soprano aria from Bach's Hunting Cantata that sets a gentle, peaceful mood. Recorded here from Bach's original score with two flutes, solo cello, and harpsichord. This version is intended as a backing track for a soloist. For a complete instrumental version that includes the melody on violin, see track 1303.
Schafe können sicher weiden,
Wo ein guter Hirte wacht.
Wo Regenten wohl regieren,
Kann man Ruh und Friede spüren
Und was Länder glücklich macht.
:Sheep may safely graze where a good shepherd watches.
Where rulers govern well, we may feel peace and rest,
and what makes countries happy.
