Morning has broken

Many people will know Bunessan as the name of the tune of Cat Stevens 1972 hit 'Morning has broken'. It owes its name to the Gaelic poet, Mary MacDonald, who lived in Bunessan and used this tune for her hymn 'Child in a manger'. Its thought that she didn't write the tune, but rather used an existing Gaelic tune and named it after the place where she lived - Bunessan.
