This is an updated arrangement from that which was originally posted in 2010. "Christus" is the title given by the composer’s brother Paul to fragments of an unfinished oratorio by Felix Mendelssohn, published posthumously as Op. 97. The work was suggested by Christian Karl Josias von Bunsen, who compiled the German libretto from biblical sources. Composition began in 1846 and continued through Mendelssohn’s last year. The completed portions include this well-known chorus (originally SATB), "There Shall a Star from Jacob Shine Forth," in which Mendelssoh quoted Philipp Nicolai’s chorale "Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern." The first performance took place in 1852.
