[PDF] Bach, J. S. - BWV 0147 Choral

Post by DanielMcPherson » Thu Jul 15, 2010 2:16 pm

Here is my score for Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring". This is an amalgam of various other versions I have seen and played, rather than a new transcription from the original score. My goal in making this arrangement was to have a piece to play at weddings. For me, this means that the piece must fit on two pages, be easy to read (visually), and be easy enough to play that I can pick it up and play it at any time without having to do any maintenance practicing on it. It's worked well for me, so I hope someone else enjoys it.

I also wanted to share my LilyPond source for this score. Frankly, I think the LilyPond file is more interesting in this case than yet another version of "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring".

The LilyPond and source code discussion is here viewtopic.php?f=101&t=51402

I welcome any comments, questions, or improvements regarding either the score or the LilyPond file.

Yessss!!!

This is the first chance I've gotten to download your arrangement, Daniel. I have a few other arrangements, but this is the only one I could just read right through without having to stop and say "What?" :shock: (I'd have to spend an extra minute looking at the section where it goes up to the 5th position, but that's no problem).

Kudos for getting it on two pages! They're printing out as I type and this is the arrangement that's going into my wedding book. Thank you! (You deserve a commission everytime I play this at a wedding). :wink:

There are only two suggestions I have. In measure 42, I think you meant to use the 1st finger for the G#. It's lots easier.

Also, I like the rhythm in the bass in measure 12 and see no reason why it can't be used in measure 13 as well. I'm used to hearing it that way and it's just as easy to play it there. (If you decide to change it, you already know that there are a couple of other spots where the exact same thing happens).

:bravo: :merci:

I've seen and heard several guitar versions of of this piece.
Some (parts) are available for download on the internet, but I haven't found a full version that fits my idea of how it should sound.
But before I start transcribing myself, I will definitly have a look at your version.
I'll let you know...
Thanks anyway!

I know that this is a pretty old thread, but I've got a problem with the transcription. The second page is just black.

Can somebody fix this? Or may be send me the second page?

Regards Christoph

Hi Christoph,

Be sure you are downloading the pdf file and reading it with Adobe Reader. The file was OK just now when I viewed it, so there may be a problem with your browser viewing the file. -- Ed
