Program Notes

This arrangement is a combination of Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring and Bell Carol (Carol of the Bells). Bach’s 32nd cantata was assigned the number BWV 147, however the melody under the chorale was actually composed by Johann Schop who was a violinist and composer. Carol of the Bells was composed by Ukrainian Kykola Leaontovych in 1904 and is based on a traditional folk chant.
