O Holy Spirit, enter in (Chorale setting)

Polyphonic two part setting of this song with the unaltered cantus firmus in the lower voice. This song is better known with Phillip Nicolai's text "Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern" ("How bright appears the morning star") from 1599. Schirmer underlaid a Pentecostal text under Nicolai's melody. There is both an edition with the original 17th century German text and a version with the text of Winworth's 19th century translation underlaid.
