I was glad when they said unto me (Psalm 122: 1, 4-7) – Henry Purcell
For thither the tribes go up, ev’n the tribes of the Lord: to testify unto Israel, and to give thanks unto the Name of the Lord. For there is the seat of judgement: even the seat of the house of David. O pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls: and plenteousness within thy palaces.
“I was glad when they said unto me,” anthem originally sung for the Coronation of James II (1685), composed by Henry Purcell (1659-1695)
