Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring

Any recordings you have done that could be described as Classical, post in here.
Includes pieces one would only loosely call 'Classical' as they depart somewhat from what the composer intended.

Another classical one from me.
"Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring" (BWV Cantata 147) by Johann Sebastian Bach.
Regards, Don

Love this piece. I just wonder at how you can play what is a very full 'backing part' to this piece on the organ, and also have a choir singling along with you as you play .. when you only have two hands. Have you got three?

It's all about the music. Yamaha AR 80 Player.

Hi Don. Picked this one out as it is a favourite of mine. One of my daughters had it at her wedding. Loved the organ and voices. I was not disappointed with your playing. Keep them coming. John
