Title: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
Composer: J. S. Bach
Instrument: Organ

Notes:
 Apollo 100’s electronic keyboards adaptation was featured in the film Boogie Nights. The Beach Boys used it as a basis for Lady Lynda. Renée Fleming, who just sang the national anthem for Super Bowl XLVIII, recorded it on her 2005 album “Sacred Songs". The Brian Setzer Orchestra performs a swing arrangement as Bach's Bounce. And if you YouTube “Japanese commercial Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring” you can see it played on a GIANT gravity-driven xylophone constructed in a Kyushu forest!
