Woof, woof, my friends! Yesterday I was talking with my doggy friends  about philosophy, Kant, existentialism and… well, of course, classical music. Someone recommended me this Canata composed by the great Johann Sebastian  Bach and, I must confess, I didn’t recognize its name but when I listened it, the first notes were like food for my ears and, yes, I have listened it before a thousand times. Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring is the most common English title of the 10th and last movement of the cantata Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben, BWV 147 composed by Johann Sebastian Bach in 1716 and 1723. Written during his first year in Leipzig, Germany, this chorale movement is one of Bach’s most enduring works.

Today, the fantastic, the tremendous… Johann Sebastian Bach…  the one!

I’m sure you enjoy it! Food, meat, spaghetti and love!


The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.

Johann Sebastian Bach
