"Gleichwie der Regen und Schnee vom Himmel fällt" ("Just like the rain and snow falling from the sky" (BWV 18), is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. It was composed for Sexagesima Sunday, based on text by Erdmann Neumeister written in 1711 for the Eisenach court, which cites Isaiah and Psalm 118.

The work falls relatively early in Bach's chronology of cantata compositions — it was possibly composed for 24 February 1715, but more probably a year or two earlier. The prescribed readings for the Sunday were taken from the Second Epistle to the Corinthians, "God's power is mighty in the week" (2 Corinthians 11:19–12:9), and from the Gospel of Luke, the parable of the Sower (Luke 8:4–15). The work is scored for an SATB choir, two recorders, a bassoon, violas I-IV, violoncello and continuo. It can be noted that the instrumentation is similar to Brandenburg Concerto n°6, which also omits violins. Furthermore, the second (Leipzig) version of this cantata only uses the middle and low strings, without the recorders.

this arrangement is of the sinfonia and the form is that of a flexible chaconne, broken into episodes, in a da capo form.

Although originally written for SATB choir & period instruments, I created this arrangement for Flute Trio (Piccolo, Flute & Alto Flute).
