I came across Chris Walker’s sparkling Save us, Lord our God as the curtain raiser to the celebrations in Hyde Park for the Papal visit last year. It's an exact setting (barring an inconsequential and in the Missal text) of the Entrance antiphon from the Missal, coupled with verses from Ps 95(96). Since this antiphon is in the Missal but not the Gradual, it doesn't come with an ‘official’ accompanying psalm; the unpublished ICEL Antiphonal of 1997 proposes Ps 121(122), but Chris Walker’s choice is excellent too.
