Unto the hills mine eyes I lift
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Byrd's setting of Unto the hills mine eyes I lift (Psalm 121) is drawn from his collection entitled Songs of Sundrie Natures from 1589. It has its roots in the past and sounds a little reminiscent of the old Flemish style of imitation such as used by Robert Parsons in his anthem Deliver me from mine enemies.
