author of text

Goodmorrow dates from 1929 and was written at the request of Sir Walford Davies for the choir of St George's Chapel, Windsor, to sing at a service celebrating King George V's recovery from a serious illness. The words are by George Gascoigne, a Tudor poet, and Elgar went to one of his own early hymn tunes for the music. He conducted the first performance, which was broadcast.
