Description: Psalm 126 was specified in the Book of Common Prayer as a part of the liturgy for 29th May, the anniversary of the Restoration of Charles II. Introduced in 1662 as part of the post-restauration settlement, the liturgies for 30th January (Charles. King and Martyr's Day), 29th May and 5th November (Gunpowder Plot) were included in the BCP until 1859. All were set by Knapp.
