Baritone Saxophone 2 part from Sheep May Safely Graze (Saxophone Octet)

J.S.Bach arr. Alun Cook
5 minutes
Classical music

A beautiful peaceful aria from Bach’s Cantata BWV 208. This sounds particularly luscious on an octet of saxophones. Purists may want a simple strict interpretation of the original, but I have gone for richer harmonies and to be performed with plenty of rubato. Although not quite as wild as Grainger’s wonderful "Blithe Bells" it is still quite delicious to play (please listen to the "live" MP3).

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
