A brilliant inspiration! Mark Hayes has paired the beloved Gaelic melody BUNESSAN (commonly sung as "Morning Has Broken") with traditional texts that are a perfect match! Opening with two verses of the traditional hymn text "Bread of the World in Mercy Broken," it closes with the famous text from "St. Patrick's Breastplate." Mark's remarkable keyboard accompaniment supports the Irish folk flavor, which is further enhanced by the optional orchestration for flute or penny whistle, bass, guitar, and percussion. A must for every church choir library!

    I'm a musician of middling skill, with recorders, pennywhistles and flutes ready to hand. Most of my pennywhistle playing has been of contradance music. A friend who is a church director of music e-mailed me to suggest I give this a listen, and of course I did. I...

    should say that my buying this was provoked by my liking the sound file a lot, and the ease of ordering and obtaining the music. My friend thought the line for flute-or-whistle would be an easy read, and it was, except for the fact of the key change. But there was a good space of time for me to change from a C-whistle to a D-whistle. My one real problem when I performed with the choir was that for most of page 8 I over-powered the choir, as I realized later listening to a recording, especially measures 84 through 86, with those sustained high notes. Overall, though, playing this with a church choir was a very pleasurable experience.
