Colorado Bach Ensemble presents BWV 1: Wie Schön leuchtet der Morgenstern (How brightly shines the Morningstar)

Written during Bach’s second Liturgical Year in Leipzig and first performed in 1725, this chorale-cantata opens with a grand Chorus-Fantasia. According to the norms of the Lenten Season, the Feast of Annunciation was the only occasion when festive music was permitted.
