Seht, was der Liebe tut, BWV 85 (v) is a tenor aria taken from the Easter cantata, ‘Ich bin ein guter Hirt’ (I am the good shepherd), whose pastoral theme is superbly reflected in this gorgeously lilting creation (‘See what his love has wrought’) where the singer expresses thanks for the safety of the shepherd’s flock in a free-flowing 9/8 dance of sustained beauty. Think of a connected articulation which is both shapely, intimate and spontaneous sounding.
