How Brightly Shines the Morning Star

“How Brightly Shines the Morning Star” is one of Philipp Nicolai’s (1556-1608) two most famous chorales, the other being “Sleepers, Wake!” Together, the two have been called “The King and Queen of Chorales.”

Both tunes were used several times in works by J.S. Bach, and in this arrangement of the “Morning Star” chorale, both Bach’s harmonization and original harmonies are employed, as well as original material for the introduction, interlude/modulation, and ending.
