Courtesy of the inexhaustible Dolly, it’s time for October’s “Music passion” at http://allaboutlemon.com/music-passion/. This month, Carol at http://abcofspiritalk.wordpress.com has chosen “morning” as her music passion. Thank you, to both lovely ladies, for getting the party rolling.

So here’s my music passion — the English Folk Song, Early One Morning, by that productive but elusive composer, Anon! There’s a great deal of academic argument about its date of composition. Some people claim it’s a Renaissance Song, but most academics think it originates from 1787, which was later in the Classical Music Period.

You can find more information about the song — including two different versions of its lyrics — at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_One_Morning

Here, it is sung by the wonderful Greek Singer, Nana Mouskouri, who has sold more than two hundred million records worldwide.

  1. Are familiar with Adam Hurst? I would love to wake up to this in the morning (well if he was there to it would be a bonus :) )! He composes most of what he plays and it is said he made the instrument he plays himself! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFOUh6XiCNE&feature=relmfu

  2. That song was/is totally delightful, both the lyrics and the melodic voice singing same. Thanks for sharing this wonderful reblog from Sarah Potter! :)

I'm delighted to hear from you :) Merci, beaucoup to all who clicked LIKE...
