Colin R. Tribe || Morning Has Broken

from Colin's YT comments...
"Morning Has Broken" is a popular and well-known Christian hymn first published in 1931 with words by English author Eleanor Farjeon and set to a traditional Gaelic tune known as "Bunessan" . Cat Stevens included a version on his 1971 album "Teaser and the Firecat", with a superb piano part by Rick Wakeman that allowed some subtle modulations to occur. I have incorporated these into this quite difficult Ukulele version, wishing at times I had just left it easy but hey ho.........a bit more practice and I'll get it right. The tune itself is not that difficult, but Rick was quick!
