Bach – Jesus, Joy of Man’s Desiring – Lipatti, Piano

Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben (Heart and mouth and deed and life), BWV 147, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. The music of the chorale movements is now best known for the piano transcription by Dame Myra Hess of Hugh P. Allen’s choral version of Bach’s arrangement, and is notable under the title Jesus, Joy of Man’s Desiring which approximately relates to Jesus bleibet meine Freude, more closely translated as Jesus shall remain my joy. – Dinu Lipatti WebsiteDinu Lipatti Wikipedia
