Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Morning is Charming / Hunting Song
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Morning is Charming: Hunting Song
The March 1747 edition of the Gentleman's Magazine printed a revised and corrected setting of this song in order "to oblige the Author". The music is attributed to Mr Ridley, Organist of Prestbury in Cheshire rather than the anonymous Gentleman of Wigan who was credited for the setting printed in the January 1747 edition. There are some slight changes to the words as well which can be seen on page 144 and page 145 of the online copy of the edition for 1747.
