Program Notes on Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, BWV 147 by Bach, J.S. :

This chorale Jesus bleibet meine Freude [Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring] is the tenth and last movement of Bach's Cantata BWV 147.

This cantata, entitled Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben [Heart and Mouth and Deed and Life] was composed in Leipzig in 1723.

This score is an arrangement of Johann Sebastian Bach's Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring for viola and piano.

The viola part is appropriate for Grade 5 violists.

It is to be played in the first and third positions.

Please note that this score contains suggestions for performing the ornaments (here : trills) in accordance with the performance practice of the Baroque period.

Namely, trills are played ON the beat, starting on the upper auxiliary note.

The number of repercussions can be adjusted to the player's taste and ability.
