New Music week 20: WIE SCHÖN LEUCHTET

52 in 52For Epiphany, here is an isorhythmic setting of the great Lutheran chorale WIE SCHÖN LEUCHTET, “O Morning Star, How Fair and Bright” (or, “How Brightly Shines the Morning Star”). This free harmonization could be played on either piano or organ, and its extended chords and harmonic progressions are meant to invoke the sparkle of a star! Happy New Year… and Happy Epiphany!
