"Morning Has Broken" is a popular and well-known Christian hymn first published in 1931. It has words by English author Eleanor Farjeon and is set to a traditional Gaelic tune known as "Bunessan" (it shares this tune with the 19th century Christmas Carol "Child in the Manger"). It is often sung in children's services. English pop musician and folk singer Cat Stevens included a version on his 1971 album Teaser and the Firecat. The song became identified with Stevens when it reached number six on the US pop chart and number one on the US easy listening chart in 1972.
This hymn (UMH #145) is sung during Holy Communion at the Sierra Vista United Methodist Church (SVUMC) as well as other United Methodist churches.
Although originally written for Chorus, I created this arrangement for Woodwind Sextet (Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, English Horn, French Horn & Bassoon).
