Jesu, Joy of Man's DesiringBy Johann Sebastian Bach / arr. Percy Hall Item: 36-20255474
One of Bach's most famous melodies (actually written as a chorale by Johann Schop and embellished by J.S. Bach), this is a timeless classic with value on any program. The chorale melody is placed an octave lower than in the original choral work, providing the cellos with a delightful, melodic part. Even the second violins get their chance at the interweaving eighth-note obbligato melody in this well-balanced work. True to the original, 3/4 and 9/8 meters are sometimes used simultaneously in the ensemble.
