Sunday Morning Music



While it may not be performed as originally intended, you are listening to the 10th movement of the cantata Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben, BWV 147, more commonly known as "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Some of the commenters at the YouTube video think that this particular performance is a fake -- but to me that is missing the point. It's a creative and inspired take on a song that has been entirely over-used at weddings.

Oh, and it's a commercial for a mobile phone. So. Yeah.

Here is how the original scoring sounds. Here is another creative take.

Enjoy your Sunday.
