Notes

JESU JOY is a form of the tune WERDE MUNTER, MEIN GEMUETE by Johann Schop (b. Hamburg [?], Germany, c. 1595; d. Hamburg, 1667). In 1614 Schop was appointed court musician in the Hofkapelle at Wolfenbüttel. A virtuoso violinist, he also played the lute, cornetto, and trombone. He became a musician for King Christian IV of Denmark in Copenhagen in 1618. When the plague swept through Copenhagen, Schop fled to find employment elsewhere. In 1621 he settled in Hamburg, where he became the principal violinist for the city and organist at St. James Church. Exposed to various national music styles in Hamburg and in his travels, Schop became a cosmopolitan composer, well known for his dance suites, church concertos, and songs. He composed forty-nine new melodies for Johann Rist's Himmlische Lieder (1641-1643), including WERDE MUNTER (1642). The melody gained popularity through Johann S. Bach's (PHH 7) famous harmonization of the tune in his Cantata No. 147 (1723). JESU JOY is a rounded bar form (AABA'). In communities where this tune is well known, it would be delightful to use the Bach organ arrangement as introduction, interlude (between the two stanzas), and postlude to the singing of the psalm; Bach's setting is in G major, and the hymnal setting is in F, so one or the other needs to be transposed to combine them. A song leader can conduct the entrances for the congregation. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
