Meditation on “Morning Song”

for organ

This piece was composed to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Kentucky Harmony by Ananias Davisson in 1816. It was the first Southern shape-note collection of hymn tunes, leading to later collections of folk hymnody such as The Sacred Harp and Southern Harmony, all part of a significant chapter of the history of American music.
