A Morning Trumpet is based upon five early American hymns from the Sacred Harp: “The Morning Trumpet”, “Morning Hymn”, “Come Away to the Skies”, “How Firm a Foundation” and “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot”, entwined in the interplay between the organ, that “great beast that never breathes” and the oboe, “an ill-wind no one blows good”.
