General Information

Title: Early One Morning
Composer: Oliver Barton

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genre: SecularFolksong

Language: English
Instruments: A cappella

First published:
Description: An arrangement of the folksong, growing from a single voice up to a rapturous moment when fleetingly the first sopranos touch a top B flat. This note is borrowed from Percy Grainger’s setting (except that his is up a tone I think and is therefore a C), but his version breaks into about a million parts and is too tricky for a non-audition choir. Hence this arrangement.
