Born on a new day

First line:
You are the new day
composer

author of text

 
John David, a Cardiff-born songwriter, record producer and instrumentalist, originally wrote this abidingly fresh and affecting piece as a secular song—called New day—on the theme of the environment, and it was popularized by the King’s Singers in the 1980s. One of the present members of the group, Philip Lawson, followed the centuries-old contrafactum tradition in writing an alternative sacred text, creating a captivating new seasonal song. Peter Knight’s arrangement for the King’s Singers is nothing less than a classic.
