John Rutter: Christ Is The Morning Star

Books | SATB, Organ Accompaniment

Composer: John Rutter
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

John Rutter's Christ Is The Morning Star for SATB Choir 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 characterised 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'.
