As noted by Bobnotts in the cleanup template, this is a tune by John Wainwright. While the first known publication was in Caleb Ashworth's A Collection of Tunes [1761], Ashworth included many tunes composed by others in this book, and didn't attribute any of them. The tune was subsequently published in John Wainwright's own book A Collection of Psalm Tunes, Anthems, Hymns, and Chants [1766], which has a claim of authorship on the titlepage ('Composed by Mr. John Wainwright'). I'm moving the page to give Wainwright as the composer, and, as the current page title is an abbreviated form of the first line, I'm using Christians, awake, salute the happy morn (John Wainwright). This will keep the title consistent with the practice of using the first line of text as a title. Cydonia 16:01, 18 January 2011 (CST)
