Bach's appointment as the Cantor at Leipzig's Thomaskirche in 1723 required him to produce a new cantata for every Sunday service. Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring is taken from his Cantata No.147 and is unusually elaborate, treated more like an aria than a chorale. It is perhaps the best-loved cantata movement from Bach's entire output and is a certain crowd pleaser for your concert programme.

Bachs Anstellung im Jahr 1723 als Kantor der Thomaskirche in Leipzig brachte die Verpflichtung mit sich, fur jeden Sonntagsgottesdienst eine neue Kantate zu schreiben. Der Choral Jesu bleibet meine Freude umfasst beide Teile der Kantate und ist ungewohnlich kunstvoll ausgearbeitet, mehr wie eine der Arien denn eine Kantate. Philip Sparkes Transkription dieses beliebten Kantatensatzes ist eine wahre Bereicherung Ihres Repertoires.
