How bright appears the morning star (Chorale setting)

Polyphonic two part setting of the famous song from Nicolai's "Freudenspiegel des ewigen Lebens" (Frankfurt, 1599) with the unaltered cantus firmus in the lower voice. There is both an edition with the original German text and a version with the text of William Mercer's translation form 1859 underlaid.
