Christ is the morning star is sheer beauty in its simplicity and message. Whether performing this arrangement with or without a chorus, the beauty remains. The choral part is included in the score as reference, but is not a part of the download. Choral parts may be purchased through Oxford University Press or their affiliates. The arrangement is written so that it is playable without a chorus. This piece brings John Rutter's music to everyone because it is technically not demanding. There are sufficient doubling of parts so that even the smallest ensemble can experience the music and bring its lovely essence to an appreciative audience.
