    This done by Christopher Parkening, a stalwart Classical guitarist in our time. It's a very difficult tune to play on guitar.

    J.S. Bach is called the master of all things (or keys). This melody is a Christmas favorite of mine.

    Absolutely beautiful.

    This, however, is the reason I will always own a 12 string (on the off chance I ever get to where I can even pretend to do this):

    Those were both great. That song is especially meaningful to me, as it was our wedding march and recessional, lo those many years ago...

    Not guitar related, but when I was a teenager, our choir director in church had us do an arrangement of violin (me) cello (my brother) and pipe organ (our director) I can't find a youtube video in that vein, but this is close. It still brings a lump to my throat.

    BTW....this is an abbreviated version of the full Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring.

    I have two of his Classical Guitar Method books and he's one of my favorite players. Thanks for posting!
