‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring’

It would be remiss of me not to post this at Christmastime, one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written, and written to the glory of the Lord–Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, by J.S. Bach. The rendition by Celtic Woman is a little over-produced visually, for my taste–but the sound! If this doesn’t stir your soul, I don’t know what will.


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

One of the most beautiful pieces of music ever composed, Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, by Johann Sebastian Bach. Instrumental guitar rendition by Rick Foster; requested by Joshua. Second to none.


‘Jesu, Joy of Men’s Desiring’

Is this one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written, or what? Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring by J. S. Bach, conducted by Leopold Stokowski. We usually hear this hymn around Christmastime, but why wait?

And if the Holy Spirit isn’t in this music–well, never mind: it is!


‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring’

I’m surprised no one has asked for this hymn yet–one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written–Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, by Johann Sebastian Bach. Sung here by Celtic Woman. Most often heard around Christmas-time, this is good for every day of the year. Hard to imagine mortal, sinful human beings creating anything this beautiful: but then we are made in His image.


‘Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring’

One of the most beautiful hymns ever written, Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring, by J.S. Bach: performed here by the Edinburgh Singers, complete with oboe solo. I discovered this around Christmastime, but it’s the hymn that called to me today.

For Easter, ‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring’

It works just as well for Easter as it does for Christmas, one of the most beautiful hymns ever written: Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, by J.S. Bach. Performed by the Edinburgh Singers, with an oboe solo. Just lovely.


‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring’ (with Oboe)

I have to go to the doctor’s for a checkup this morning, but first a hymn, one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written–Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, by J.S. Bach, sung by the Edinburgh Singers, with an oboe solo, a very nice touch that I haven’t seen before.


‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring’

Is this not one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written? Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, composed by J.S. Bach, performed here by Celtic Woman–we usually find this hymn associated with Christmas, but it’ll do just fine year-round. If this hymn doesn’t stir your soul, I don’t know what will.


The Best: ‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring’

I just can’t think of a more beautiful hymn than this: Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, by Johann Sebastian Bach. Here the orchestra is conducted by Leopold Stokowki, vintage 1992.


Encore: ‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring’

Christmas must work every day throughout the year: we need it. And one of the ways it works is by music. Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, by Johann Sebastian Bach, here performed by Celtic woman–if this doesn’t stir your soul, then you need Vigoro or something.
