Kati Agocs: Morning Star

Morning Star was commissioned by Emmanuel Music (Ryan Turner, Artistic Director and John Harbison, Principal Guest Conductor) in celebration of their Fiftieth Anniversary season, as a prelude to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cantata BWV 1, Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern (How beautifully the morning star shines). Like the Bach work, it concerns itself with themes of the Annunciation.
