O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth
Byrd joined Queen Elizabeth’s Chapel Royal in 1572, and probably wrote this anthem a few years later. Its text comes from Psalm 21, but has been customized to address Elizabeth by name. Following the queen’s death in 1603, the words of the anthem had to be changed to match the name of each succeeding monarch; but since 1952, by pleasing coincidence, Byrd’s original text is once again relevant.
