Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: “Sheep May Safely Graze”

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

This is an acoustic instrumental version of a classical favorite (aka Cantata #208) by Johann Sebastian Bach, performed by guitarist Brian Bunker. You may listen to this and other classical works at his MySpace page. In addition to classical music, Bunker also performs jazz as frontman for the Brian Bunker Trio.

Schafe können sicher weiden,
    Sheep may safely graze,
Wo ein guter Hirte wacht.
    where a good shepherd watches.
Wo Regenten wohl regieren,
    Where rulers govern well,
Kann man Ruh und Friede spüren
    we may feel peace and rest
Und was Länder glücklich macht.
    and what makes countries happy.
