Well, you tried your (h)artist.
The Sistene chapel thingy is pretty astounding but the music of JS Bach, even the religious motifs are universal. Most of his works were religious oriented but there were a few like the Brandenburg Concertos but works like Jesu Joy of Man's desiring was beyond brilliant. I hear it played on pianoo and guitar, the best version I ever heard was by Christopher Parkening, I think that piece was Parkening at his peak.
That piece was the last movement of the Cantata Hurz und Mund und Tat und Leben, "Heart and Mouth and Deed and Life', kind of an odd title but the entire piece is incredible. People should listen to the whole thing with chorus and orchestra then listen to Jesu, either Myra Hess version on piano, an incredible version or Parkening on guitar. It is a wonderful piece.
Myra Hess, not live but just brilliant, she made the arrangement every other pianist uses today.
Christopher Parkening, guitar:
He makes it sound superhuman, the way he separates the choral part from the original orchestral version, simply the best version ever played on guitar.
Guitar and Cello by Duo Rosanna, Anna Comellas, Cello, Roselind Moussa, Guitar, great name for the duo!
Not as smooth as Parkening but the duo sound is great.
And the entire Cantata:
