Christ Is The Morning Star

Christ Is The Morning Star

Publisher OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS IN-PRINT TITLES
Composer John Rutter
Voice/Instrument SATB
Difficulty Unrated

for SATB and organ
Commissioned by Graham Ross for the choir of Clare College, Cambridge, this joyous yet reflective Christmas carol will appeal to both choir and audience. It is characterized by a soaring melody, an artful use of texture, and a gentle expressiveness, heightened by modal inflections and the organ accompaniment. The text, written by the composer, is inspired by an inscription in Durham Cathedral by the Venerable Bede: 'Christus est stella matutina'.
