Sacred Music Friday: Morning Has Broken

It really is sacred. “Morning Has Broken” was written by Eleanor Farjeon in 1931, long before Cat Stevens was born. It is in the 1982 Episcopal hymnal and Evangelical Lutheran Worship. In fact, according to hymnary,org it is in 72 hymnals. We sang it regularly at the Unitarian church in Oklahoma City.

I like this version. It is rather Rutteresque, I think.

I can’t resist sharing this version with you as well. The organ improvisation takes up three-plus minutes and only the last forty-five seconds or so is the hymn, but I love the cathedral setting.
