Morning Has Broken

Music by Eleanor Farjeon

Originally Performed by Cat Stevens

"Morning Has Broken" is a Christian hymn first published in 1931. It has words by English author Eleanor Farjeon and was inspired by the village of Alfriston in East Sussex, then set to a traditional Scottish Gaelic tune, "Bunessan". It is often sung in children's services and in funeral services. English pop musician and folk singer Cat Stevens included a version on his album Teaser and the Firecat (1971). The song became identified with Stevens due to the popularity of this recording. It reached number six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, number one on the U.S. easy listening chart in 1972,[3] and number four on the Canadian RPM magazine charts

Cambridge Singers : Sing, Ye Heavens : 00  1 CD : John Rutter : 126

Cambridge Singers : Sing, Ye Heavens

Directed by John Rutter, this recording takes as its grand objective a collection of "hymns for all time." Drawn from the Anglican tradition without apology, many of these 21 compositions are accompanied, by anything from a single harp to the London Sinfonia Brass, though there are some a cappella chants. There is nothing stiff or abstract about these arrangements, however. The Cambridge mixed ensemble breathes a vitality into each note, and folk hymns such as "Be Thou My Vision" couldn't be lovelier. Those listeners who grew up singing these hymns in church will be especially fond of "Sing, Ye Heavens," but anyone can enjoy the purity of the sound of the Cambridge Singers.

Songlist: O God, Our Help In Ages Past, The King Of Love My Shepherd Is, A Mighty Fortress Is Our God, Veni, Creator Spiritus, Lo! He Comes With Clouds Descending, Love Divie, All Loves Excelling, Pange Lingua, Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence, Vexilla Regis, Drop, Drop, Slow Tears, When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, Christ the Lord is Risen Today, Be Thou My Vision, All Things Bright and Beautiful, Morning Has Broken, Amazing Grace, We Plough the Fields and Scatter, Glory to Thee, My God, This Night, The Day Though Gavest, Lord, Is Ended, Eternal God, Christ Is Made the Sure Foundation

Choir of King's College, Cambridge : Best Loved Hymns : 00  1 CD : Stephen Cleobury : EMC57026.2

Choir of King's College, Cambridge : Best Loved Hymns

If you enjoy this kind of music - that is, hymns rooted in the Anglican church tradition - you will find much pleasure here, whether it be meditative or openly exuberant. The Choir of King's College has been singing congregational music for centuries, and the tradition, impeccably articulated and warmly expressed by the choir, remains truly and firmly preserved to this day. John Rutter had more than a casual hand in this program. He offers new arrangements/harmonizations for verses of some hymns and the choir sings his oft-performed setting of "Morning has broken". And for those who think all hymns recordings are basically the same, virtually all of the best-known tunes among these 18 selections are given fresh settings, several with descants and a few with brass accompaniments. Among the not-so-common hymns are some of the most beautiful-"Dear Lord" and "Father of mankind" (Repton), "My song is love unknown" and a hymn-anthem by William Harris, "O what their joy and their glory must be". One of the highlights of the program is a relatively new work, a hymn-anthem by British conductor/composer Stephen Jackson based on the familiar text and tune "Let all mortal flesh keep silence". Jackson ingeniously uses choir and organ and music full of rich colors, lush dissonances, and bold strokes and clashes of melody to capture the magic and mystery of the ancient text.

Songlist: All my hope on God is founded , Praise, my soul, the King of Heaven, Morning has broken , Come down, O Love divine , A mighty fortress is our God, O what their joy and their glory must be , When I survey the wondrous cross , Dear Lord and Father of Mankind , Be thou my vision, The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended, Let all mortal flesh keep silent , Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the king of creation, My song is love unknown, The Lord's my shepherd, Thine be the glory , Drop, drop, slow tears (Song 46) , Glorious things of thee are spoken , All people that on earth do dwell
