Gabriel Jackson's five-part setting of William Blake's poem 'To Morning' is one of my favourite examples of a modern composer achieving a perfect match between his text and his music. I love how he treats his topic here – the way in which the tiny speck on the horizon is enticed lovingly with musical caresses to draw nearer and nearer and how as the dawn draws closer and closer the choir trumpets the growing light that 'Rous'd' like a huntsman to the chase' appears 'upon our hills'. How better to start a week? You'll find it below, together with its text and performer information. Enjoy :-).
