J. S. Bach - Christmas Oratorio - Schlafe, mein Liebster

John Eliot Gardiner leads the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists, with Bernarda Fink in "Schlafe, mein Liebster," from Bach's Christmas Oratorio (BWV 248).

Schlafe, mein Liebster, genie├če der Ruh,
Wache nach diesem vor aller Gedeihen!
Labe die Brust,
Empfinde die Lust,
Wo wir unser Herz erfreuen!

Sleep now, my dearest, enjoy now thy rest,
Wake on the morrow to flourish in splendor!
Lighten thy breast,
With joy be thou blest,
Where we hold our heart's great pleasure!
