243 Cantata No.208
A big fall of 86 places. Lowest position since 2006. 3rd of Bach's 12 entries.
Although best known for 'Sheep May Safely Graze', this particular work is described as Bach's Hunting Cantata — a reference to its secular subject matter.
Its beacon aria is the ninth movement, Schafe können sicher weiden. To explain that line, sheep may graze safely where there's a good shepherd who stays awake and where there's a good nobleman watching over a blissful nation. Why did Bach set such a line? Well, because he was writing this music for the birthday of Duke Christian in 1713 and he knew which side his bread was buttered. The commission also gives rise to its third name, the Birthday Cantata.
