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 melody is instantly recognizable and has been featured in countless films, recordings, and TV shows including Downton 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.
