The Morning Light
by U C Burnap, reprint of 1867 S T Gordon & Son edition
This is a new printing of the original edition on sturdy, acid-free paper. From “The Great Organ” series of pieces played
in the famous Plymouth Church in Brooklyn, New York, this piece is based on a famous tune not now associated with its original hymn text,
“The Morning Light Is Breaking.” This rousing tune, known as “Webb,” is now associated with
“Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus,” though it first appeared with “’Tis Dawn, the Lark is Singing,” a secular
song by George J Webb (1803–1887). 12 pages. All markings are original. Highest quality guaranteed. Size of music is
10.5" x 13.5"
