Bunessan (Scottish Gaelic: Bun Easain) is a small village in the south of the island of Mull, on the west coast of Scotland. Bunessan lends its name to a hymn tune, originally associated with the Christmas carol, "Child in the Manger". Mary M. Macdonald (1789?1872), who lived in the nearby crofting community of Ardtun and who spoke only Gaelic, wrote her hymn "Leanabh an Aigh" to a traditional melody. When the words were later translated into English, the melody was named after the village by the translator, Lachlan Macbean. Sometime before 1927 Alexander Fraser heard the melody from a minstrel in the Scottish Highlands and wrote it down so that it came to the attention of Percy Dearmer, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and Martin Shaw. In turn, these editors of the hymnbook Songs of Praise requested Eleanor Farjeon to write a further hymn text to the tune. This was "Morning Has Broken" and since 1931 the tune has become most familiarly identified with this hymn. (Wikipedia)
