Lift Up Your Heads
"Lift up your heads, o ye gates, be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory shall come in." so begins the text taken from the Psalms in this bright piece that is scored for unison/2-part voices, keyboard and optional percussion. Additional text from Matthew reads: Hosanna to the Son, to the Son of David, Hosanna, sanna, David's Son! Options are given for two synthesizers, upper 4th octave bells or glockenspiel or tonebells and bass. However, the anthem may be performed with voices and piano only.
