scores ; Veni Sancte Spiritus

"Veni Sancte Spiritus" sequence commissioned for Pentecost. Intended to be sung after the First Reading and lead into the Second Reading, upon the tolling of a bell, the choir begins with a hushed invocation before building in intensity. A cantor (bass soloist) then leads before a seraphim (solo soprano) joins the choir in invoking the Holy Spirit. The triumphant final section with organ ends in a hushed supplication and the final echo of a bell.
