Sing joyfully
Byrd composed surprisingly few anthems, bearing in mind that he was a member of the Chapel Royal for more than four decades. This one, with words from Psalm 81, is arguably his best, and definitely his most popular. There’s something of the madrigal about it, especially at the words ‘Blow the trumpet in the new moon’.
