Advent: Angels from the Realms of Glory (HT @ZacHicks )

It’s the first Sunday in Advent, which means Christmas is not too far away (and the  Weihnachtsmarkt and it’s delicacies is here!).

Anyway, seems like a good time to highlight a rocking new arrangement of the old carol “Angels from the realms of glory” from Zac Hicks. I’ve been powering away to it at the gym lately, and one thing that I love is how it couples the hymn with Psalm 24:

Lift up your heads, O gates!
And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord, strong and mighty,
the Lord, mighty in battle!
Lift up your heads, O gates!
And lift them up, O ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts,
he is the King of glory!

Have a listen (get the lead sheet here):
