How Brightly Shines the Morning Star
Johann Sebastian Bach's familiar chorale is here creatively set for 3 to 6-octaves of bells and optional 3 to 5-octaves of chimes and windchimes. A good choice for Advent and Christmas. The chorale in this work was harmonized by Bach many times. Three of those settings are included in this arrangement in their originals keys of D, E and F major. The opening theme is used throughout the work as connective material between the chorales and sometimes within a chorale. Watch for varying tempos.
