Program Notes

In the Mornin' is an arrangement by Charles Ives of a traditional African-American spiritual anonymously notated before 1850. He was inspired to make his arrangement after hearing the melody in 1929, sung unaccompanied by Mary Evelyn Stiles, an African-American woman who was a friend of his family. The work may also be known as Give Me Jesus. The band setting performed for the concert is by noted Ives scholar Kenneth Singleton.
