Our Meet the Composer graded piano solos are written to give students to best chance for success while maintaining the integrity of the original work. This piece, Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, is an arrangement and comes from Bach’s Cantata BWV 147.


Today, it is often performed at wedding ceremonies as well as during Christian festive seasons like Christmas & Resurrection Sunday slowly and reverently. This is however, apparently in defiance to the effect suggested by Bach in his original scoring, for voices with trumpet, oboes, strings, and continuo. His music combines profound expression with clever musico-mathematical feats, like fugues and cannons in which the same melody is played against itself in various ways.
I tried to keep true to more of the original lines but also keep it simple enough to sight-read at gigs.


Written during his first year in Leipzig, Germany, this chorale movement is one of Bach’s most enduring works.
