Bach: keys and moods?

About twenty years ago, my piano teacher said that she'd read that Bach assigned a different mood to each key, and that correlation helped him determine the key of each composition. The one I remember was that D-major stood for joy.

I've Googled and researched and kept an eye open since she mentioned this, and I've found no text that backs up her claim. Does anyone know where I could look, or (better yet) have evidence for her claim?

Thanks!
