Carl August Peter Cornelius (24 December 1824 – 26 October 1874) was a German composer.
In the U.K. to this day, Cornelius's best-known work is "The Three Kings", a song for voice and piano in which the soloist sings "Three Kings from Persian lands afar ...", while from the piano is heard the chorale tune of Philipp Nicolai, Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern ("How brightly shines the morning star") underneath.
In my version for wind quintet the solo for the verses 1 and 2 is taken by the clarinet, and oboe leads in the 3rd verse.
