Dietrich Buxtehude
Jesu Meine Freude, BuxWV 60

Mvt.I: Sonata
Mvt.II: Jesu meine freude

The only score I could find is this low edition in D minor.. What you hear in the video is I believe one full step higher than this, in E minor..

About the work:

Jesu meine is a setting of the verses of a Lutheran chorale. In Jesu meine freude, Buxtehude sets verses 1, 4 and 6 for full forces - two sopranos and bass, two violins, bass and continuo - using the mid-17th century tune in realtively unadorned form. Verses 2, 3 and 5 are solos for each of the three voices in turn, and are not obvious settings of the chorale tune, though soprano line in verse 5 outlines the tune in subtle ways. The work begins with an extended three-movement sonata.

German Text:

Jesu, meine Freude,
Meines Herzens Weide,
Jesu, meine Zier,
Ach wie lang, ach lange
Ist dem Herzen bange
Und verlangt nach dir!
Gottes Lamm, mein Bräutigam,
Außer dir soll mir auf Erden
Nichts sonst Liebers werden.

English Translation:

Jesus, my joy,
pasture of my heart,
Jesus, my adornment
ah how long, how long
is my heart filled with anxiety
and longing for you!
Lamb of God, my bridegroom,
apart from you on the earth
there is nothing dearer to me.
