    Completed version of Bach bwv764 unfinished choral How bright shines the morning star

    Hello
    Please listen to this achieved version of the choral BWV 764 :
    Wie schon leuchtet der morgenstern / How bright shines the morning star.

    I do not know why but JS Bach only wrote the first 23 bars of this magnifiscent choral for organ. What a pity. As a game I have tryed to finish his work, adding 33 new measures. I hope the great Master will forgive me for this sacrilege.
    Registration (fonds 8' & 4') and tempo (58 bpm) informations was taken from Marcel Dupré's book volume XII (bornemann editions)

    MP3 of WIE SCHON LEUCHTET DER MORGENSTERN

    and here is the score (free download)

    Wonderful ... it's so great to have this piece in its completed form now.

    The great master is no doubt smiling upon you at this moment for taking the initiative to complete his work.
    I had to use the Buxtehude and Pachelbel versions of this chorale for Epiphany Sunday this year.

    I will most certainly use this version of J-Paul's in church next year for Epiphany Sunday.

    Hello Jean-Paul

    Bravo for your work ! (and thank you for the score. )
    I've just listen to the mp3 without reading the score, and I didn't notice any break beetwen JSB and your additions.
    I'm not an expert, but in my ears, all the music goes fluently, as one unique piece.
