Tchaikovsky composed his “Album for the young” in 1878; thirty years after Robert Schumann composed his Album for the young op. 68. The Tchaikovsky`s album for the young is a collection of twenty four songs for intermediate piano students. The Morning Prayer is a choral for four voices. The great technical difficulty in this piece is to highlight differences among each one of the voices, especially the upper voice, which is played by the weakest fingers.
