This set and parts contains TWO VERSIONS: one complete version, and one easier short version (see below)

Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring is a chorale from J. S. Bach’s cantata Herz un Mund und Tat und Leben ("Heart and Mouth and Deed and Life"), BWV 147. The original scoring was for trumpet, oboes, two violins, basso continuo, and chorus. The melody is instantly recognizable and has been featured in countless films, recordings, and TV shows including Downtown Abbey, The Minority Report, The Muppet Show, the album Switched-On Bach by Moog-synthesizer artist Wendy Carlos, and the song "Lady Linda" by The Beach Boys. It is also found on most Top-100 lists of All-Time Classical Music Favorites.

Two arrangements are included:

The Complete Version is the entire cantata and is just over four minutes long. This version is perfect for worship services and recitals.

The Short Version is a much simpler arrangement that is ideal for Weddings. It conveniently repeats sixteen measures so it can be as short as one minute (perhaps for a candle lighting ceremony), and may be repeated as needed if the processional takes longer than expected, or for any situation where you need to vamp.

This product was created by a member of ArrangeMe, Hal Leonard’s global self-publishing community of independent composers, arrangers, and songwriters. ArrangeMe allows for the publication of unique arrangements of both popular titles and original compositions from a wide variety of voices and backgrounds.
