    This arrangement is notated as Intermediate/Advanced, but I found it to be very do-able, and I still consider myself in the Beginner category. I played this as a child, probably a simplified arrangement, and wasn't sure, 50 years later, if I could play it now, but this...

    arrangement is very user-friendly, besides incorporating nicely all the beautiful nuances of the piece.

    I was very pleased that this particular rendition of Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, contains an abundance of notations on fingering and pedaling. Both are very helpful, given the style of the piece.
