Early On One Christmas Morn is a traditional Gospel Christmas song originally recorded in 1929 by the Cotton Top Mountain Sanctified Singers. When I heard this arrangement by Bruce Cockburn I loved the "rootsy, front porch musical jam" feeling of this song and knew if ever I had the opportunity to record a collection of fun, rollicking Christmas songs I would want this tune included.
