Morning has broken

For Solo (instrumental or vocal part)

Uploaded on Aug 22, 2015

New recording. For this piece (piano, organ or harpsichord) I used the layout and modulation plan of a Bach invention (not as elaborate as Bach, Bach is better) and mixed it a little bit with my own harmonies. So that it is accessible for the congregation, albeit also novel.

Just another thing : may I make an arrangement for piano of this score? Of course all credit will go to you.
Sure, you can give it a try. Although this version is already playable on the piano.
This is magnificent and beautiful in its own way! Great job! I always admire your works!
Very nice! I really liked the melody!
Not quite, although no one is excluded from comunion. We have a liberal protestant church, with no regular mass. But it is tradition that de sermon is followed by an organ piece. Like this one.
O, I love this piece. It's a really nice interlude for a service.
That's a fast one. I wonder how old the tune is?
I have no idea. In the recent Dutch protestant hymn book it's annotated as a Celtic folk melody. Wikipedia states: 'Sometime before 1927 Alexander Fraser heard the melody 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 hymn book 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.'
