Bach's authorship of this chorale prelude on "Jese meine Freude" is doubted. And probably rightly so. The use of sequences is a bit bland and not as refined as you might expect from Bach. It's nevertheless a nice work in which the accompaniment of the choral melody is almost concert like and moves all over the manual. It's almost necessary to notate it on four staves. I tried to squeeze it into three. Though the manuscript notates the choral melody on the upper stave, I think it's far more easy to play it with the left hand, so I notate it on the middle stave.
