Subject: re McArthurs and hymn
Date: Mon, 26 Feb 2001 21:39:51 -0000
Many thanks to Jean and Jo for information about the McArthurs. Thanks to Jo and others I now know more about the origin of the hymn "Child in a Manger" (Bunessan). Mary MacDonald who wrote the words for it was born at Ardtun near Bunessan and so the melody from another source was entitled Bunessan. Many folks will know the Cat Steven's version of it as "Morning has broken".
