Oh Happy Day

May 6, 2018

“Oh Happy Day,” by the Edwin Hawkins Singers, recorded at the Ephesian Church of God in Christ in Berkeley, California, 1967. Lead vocalist, Dorothy Combs Morrison. The singers were from Mr. Hawkins’ Northern California State Youth Choir, and the recording was a fundraising effort for them.

Mr.Hawkins’ song is based on “O happy day that fixed my choice,” a poem written by Philip Doddridge (1702-1751). It was originally sung to an existing tune composed by Johann Freylinghausen (1670–1739), and later set to music (with the added chorus) by Edward Francis Rimbault (1816–1876), but at least one London congregation sings it to an older tune composed by Ralph Harrison (1748–1810).
