Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern (How beautifully shines the morning star), BWV 1, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed the chorale cantata in 1725 in Leipzig for the feast of the Annunciation and first performed it on 25 March 1725, which fell that year on Palm Sunday. The cantata is based on the hymn Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern (1599) by Philipp Nicolai.

This cantata is the last chorale cantata of the cycle of 1724 –5. The unidentified librettist has used one of the best-known Lutheran hymns as the basis of the text, Philipp Nicolai’s Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern (1599).According to an old tradition this hymn was assigned to the feast of the Epiphany, but it was also sung at the Annunciation. As often the wording of the first and last verses has been preserved, while the remainder has been paraphrased. Dürr comments : “Altogether, the librettist must be credited with the empathy which he shows for that fervour which characterises Nicolai’s poem…. The librettist has, moreover, supplied Bach with verse which, if not inspired, is nonetheless thoughtful and appealing”.

"Wie bin ich doch so herzlich froh" (How full I am therefore of heartfelt joy) is a Chorale (Mvt. 6) featuring Chorus, Reeds, Brass & Continuo. Although this piece was originally created for Voice (SATB) and period instruments, I created this arrangement for Wind Ensemble (Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, English Horn, French Horn & Bassoon).
