An intimate arrangement of this beautiful piece from the later version of Bach's Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben. Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring is ideal for weddings or baptisms, or just as a performance for guitar and flute ensemble. I have included a NO TAB score for those annoyed by TAB, but bearing in mind how widespread it is, parts include both notation and TAB guitar versions. It is pretty easy to play, with few sticky moments and a couple of short excursions up the neck.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
