Aria from Cantata No. 1, How Brightly Shines Yon Star of Morn

composer: Bach, Johann Sebastion (1685-1750); arranged: Fitzgerald
title: Aria from Cantata No. 1, How Brightly Shines Yon Star of Morn
publisher: Medici Music Press
level: High School Advanced
range: a flat”
description: As a vocal transcription, this piece is smooth and melodic, although the melody contains lots of scale-like, sixteenth note figures. The melody stays near the top of the staff quite a lot, making endurance somewhat difficult, but there are many small breaks in which to rest one’s lips. It is very pretty and represents a rare opportunity for students to experience Baroque music at its best.
