Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, is an arrangement from Bach’s Cantata BWV 147. This is a great piece for gigs such as weddings. I tried to keep true to the original but also keep it simple enough to sight-read at gigs. You can also find the tab as a hardcopy in my Classical Guitar Tab book on Amazon.

Matthew McAllister playing from my edition. This comes via his amazing YouTube channel. It's so fantastic to hear a great pro like McAllister play my score, he's so musical and it's always interesting to hear a new interpretation.
