About 'Sheep May Safely Graze from Cantata BWV 208'
||Bach, Johann Sebastian (biography) (sheet music)|
|Born:||21 March 1685
|Died:||28 July 1750
|The Artist:||One of the greatest composers of all time. Bach wrote hundreds of pieces for organ, choir, as well as many other instruments. He spent most of his life as a church organist and a choir director. His music combines profound expression with clever musico-mathematical feats, like fugues and canons in which the same melody is played against itself in various ways.|
Written in 1713, early in Bach's tenure at Weimar, the Hunt Cantata was composed to for a celebration in Weissenfels of the birthday of Duke Christian of Sachsen-Weissenfels and later reworked and performed at other similar birthday celebrations and on namedays.
