Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring


Shari Pack’s arrangement of J.S. Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring is for three lever or pedal harps. Although the first and third harp part are best played on pedal harp, they are adaptable for the experienced lever harpist. This piece (Cantata No. 147) is probably the best known of all Baroque pieces. It is well-loved in church and wedding settings.
