J. S. Bach: Schlummert ein, ihr matten Augen, from Cantata 82

Performed by Lorraine Hunt Lieberson and the Orchestra of Emmanuel Music, conducted by Craig Smith (10 minutes)

Sleep, my weary eyes.
Fall softly, sweetly.
O World, I abide here no longer;
I have no part in you that could matter to my soul.
In this place only misery remains to me,
But there I shall find
Sweet peace, quiet rest.
