I came across this beautiful chant through a choral warm-up exercise taught by Gordon Franklin at Columbus State Community College, and immediately had visions of a more extended version of it. Here’s the result – hopefully a mesmeric depiction of the ceaseless rhythm of the earth on its journey through space.

The earth is turning
The earth is turning,
Turning always round to morning,
And from morning round to night.
