I have loved Bach's "Joy of Man's Desiring" for many, many years (who hasn't?), and while I've always preferred Rick Foster's guitar arrangement in C Maj (very difficult), I couldn't help but wonder how the piece might sound on the guitar in D Maj. My question emerged because I found myself thinking that this piece simply sounds better on the guitar in a higher key. Most entry-level arrangements are in G Maj, which sounds nice enough, and a few have arranged the piece in A Maj, which sounds better still. The highest key that I've heard this piece on the guitar is Rick Foster's arrangement, which I've heretofore considered the ultimate guitar arrangement.
To my surprise, today I just happened to stumble upon an arrangement in D Maj by Jose de Azpiazu. It looks to be every bit as difficult as Rick Foster's C Maj arrangement, but I'd really like to hear it!
Is anyone here familiar with Azpiazu's D Maj arrangement of this piece? Has it been recorded? I'm dying to hear it, but I can't find a performance of it on Youtube or Amazon:-(
