More about this Level 5 Celtic style "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring":
"Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" was written by a German composer Johann Sebastien Bach (1685 – 1750) from the baroque era. It is one of the most popular pieces by Bach. It is the last movement (the 10th) from the cantata, Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben (Heart and Mouth and Deed and Life), BWV 147.
Even though "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" is the baroque piece, our particular arrangement here is in a unique Celtic style. This Level 5 arrangement of it is at an advanced level (Level 5). It's written in the original key of G major that Bach wrote. Both right and left hands play 2 notes each at the same time almost the whole time. Some notes are required to be held longer while the other finger needs to play shorter (faster) beats with the same hand frequently. Though quite challenging, our Level 5 "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" in Celtic style is a refreshing sounding arrangement of the very old baroque music.
