Program Notes

This folk song is particularly notable for its use in a number of well-known folk-song arrangements including one by the English composer Benjamin Britten. It is peaceful and reflective with interesting parts for all. There are sections of melody for all voices. This is a great piece for developing lyrical ensemble playing.

- Program Note by publisher


Early One Morning (Roud V9617) is an English folk song with lyrics first found in publications as far back as 1787. A broadside ballad sheet in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, dated between 1828 and 1829 has the title The Lamenting Maid and refers to the lover leaving to become a sailor.
