Program Notes

Morning Has Broken was commissioned in honor of the brave health workers and first responders for their heroism during the COVID-19 crisis, and is dedicated to those who suffered tragedy and loss as a result of the pandemic.

- Program Note by composer

Morning Has Broken is a 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.
