Sacred Choral Music by J. S. Bach (1685-1750)

Motet "Jesu meine Freude" (BWV 227)

Sequenced and arranged by J. R. Jennings

This motet was written in Leipzig and dates from 1723 (e. g. see the entry for this work in Wikipedia). Surviving scores of "Jesu meine Freude" include only vocal parts, but modern scholarship has established that the motets by J. S. Bach were sung with instrumental accompaniment (e. g. see the discussion on motets in Wikipedia). The chorales of various cantatas (e.g. 4, 78) have and instrumental accompaniment that consists of various instuments doubling the vocal parts and an additional continuo line, which might or might not exactly double the bass part and might or might not include figures to indicate the chord structure. The files available here contain the complete vocal score and continuo part that has been written out in modern musical notation. Software to read NWC scores can be downloaded free of charge.
