Music in the Morning

By Joseph M. Martin

The spirit of early American hymnody breathes in this newly composed tune and arrangement. Rustic joy abounds as the vigorous octavo dances into your heart with the promises of heaven and everlasting life. The mostly pentatonic melody toggles between major and minor modes, creating a powerful acclamation of praise and thanksgiving. The optional orchestration adds a theatrical sweep to the anthem, hinting at recognizable Americana timbres and textures.
