Guildford Cathedral Choir, directed by Barry Rose:
Concert at Guildford Cathedral, 21 May 1973:
(From "Christus", an unfinished oratorio published posthumously as Op. 97 and completed by the composer's brother, Paul. Original German text compiled by Christian Charles Josias von Bunsen)

When Jesus, our Lord, was born in Bethlehem, in the land of Judea; Behold, from the east to the city of Jerusalem there came wise men and said: Say, where is he born, the king of Judea? For we have seen his star, and are come to adore him.

There shall a star from Jacob come forth, and a sceptre from Israel rise up, and dash in pieces princes and nations. As bright the star of morning gleams, so Jesus sheddeth glorious beams of light and consolation! Thy Word, O Lord, radiance darting, truth imparting, gives salvation; Thine be praise and adoration!
