Tune of the Day: Sheep May Safely Graze

 from J.S. Bach's cantata “Was mir behagt, ist nur die muntre Jagd”

One of the best loved of Bach's secular cantatas, the Hunt Cantata, BWV 208, was composed in 1713 by Johann Sebastian Bach for the 35th birthday of Prince Christian of Saxen-Weißenfels. Movement 9, Aria 5, Schafe können sicher weiden (“Sheep may safely graze”), is certainly the most familiar part of this cantata.

We propose the original arrangement in B flat major, for soprano with 2 recorders and continuo. You may play the part of the soprano, or one of the two recorders.

Tune of the Day: National Anthem of the Dominican Republic

 arranged for flute and piano

Composer José Rufino Reyes y Siancas was inspired to create this national anthem for the Dominican Republic in 1882, after seeing the Argentine anthem in a newspaper.

The anthem is also known as “Quisqueyanos valientes”, after the first verse of the lyrics, although that was never the official title. Interestingly, the Spanish name of the Dominican Republic, “República Dominicana”, is never used in the anthem's official Spanish lyrics, nor is the word “dominicanos”. Rather, the anthem uses the indigenous word for the island of Hispaniola, “Quisqueya”.

Thanks to Leomar for suggesting this piece!
