Sing joyfully (Psalm 81:1-4) – William Byrd

Psalm 81:1-4Sing joyfully to God our strength; sing loud unto the God of Jacob! Take the song, bring forth the timbrel, the pleasant harp, and the viol. Blow the trumpet in the new moon, even in the time appointed, and at our feast day. For this is a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.

From the Utrecht Psalter, blowing a trumpet.
