By Request, ‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring’

I usually save this hymn for Christmas-time; but Erlene planted the suggestion in my head this morning, so here it is–Jesu, Joy of Men’s Desiring, by J.S. Bach, performed by the New London Symphony Orchestra.

I was whistling this to myself one day, on my way into the Y, when a passerby stopped and said, “That’s so beautiful! What’s it called?” So I told him. Surely among the most beautiful pieces of music ever written.

  1. Yes, it is beautiful in every way. Something more classical than I usually suggest, but then I like all styles of worship every day.
