My Lord, What a Mornin' is one of many anonymous spirituals sung in the fields and in worship by African-American slaves in the nineteenth century. In this setting, sonorities of the band instruments are utilized which express a longing for the end of time, when there would be no sorrow, no pain. The last line of the refrain serves as the title for this setting.

At measure 9 the trumpet figure evokes the text "you'll hear the trumpet sound." Whenever this figure appears, a controlled marcato will provide contrast to thesostenuto style that prevails in the piece. Conductors have some liberty at measure 37 choosing the solo or soli that best suits the ensemble. In the last two measures, be careful that the accompaniment does not cover the melodic bass line or the timpani solo that ends the piece.
