Lift up your heads, O ye gates, Op 44 No 2

1969; commissioned for Anthems for Choirs, 1
author of text
Psalm 24: 7-10

Lift up your heads, O ye gates (from Psalm 24, commissioned for OUP’s 1973 collection Anthems for Choirs I, edited by Francis Jackson) is perky, confident, wickedly militaristic and full of Welsh dragons.
