In this lovely anthem, the words of Psalm 84:1-4 are set to a beautiful melody by Felix Mendelssohn. The text speaks of the joy found in God's house and the inclusive welcome God gives to everyone - even the lowly sparrow and swallow. A flowing, arpeggiated accompaniment tastefully supports both the melody and the optional descant, which may be sung or played by a C treble instrument.
