How Brightly Shines the Morning Star
This chorale prelude features the melody rung on handchimes with a gigue-like fugue in the bells as accompaniment. Jesus is identified as the “Morning Star” and this is the basis of hymns typically associated with the Epiphany. This arrangement is straight-forward and true to the original prelude and should be rung in that style with no variation in dynamics. 57 measures. Key of C Major.
