This beloved 15th-century tune has been the inspiration of numerous secular and sacred settings through the ages. In his extraordinary new setting, James Koerts suffuses the tune with the awe of Christmas Eve: "What star is this, with beams so bright, more lovely than the noonday light?" Harmonic colors surprise and delight, and optional flute and percussion add to the mood of this beautiful, yet accessible piece.
