Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750):  Cantata «Er rufet seinen Schafen mit Namen» - BWV 175
source: Recorder Parts in Bach’s Sacred Music
scoring: GGGB or AAAB (Bass instrument)
From this cantata, I am publishing here the three movements in which the recorders are used.
Bach clearly requires three treble recorders in G. I have transposed the score from the original key of G major to F major so that the arrangement can be played on ordinary treble recorders and at the same time the three original recorder parts can be played in a philological performance of this cantata.
