Holy Spirit, Come
Simply beautiful, this anthem begins in sincere reflection with a pristine melodic theme reaching into the silence. An almost fragile piano part sets a contemplative spirit as the song moves into a devoted prayer for God's presence in our journey of faith. Linear part-writing, characterized by stepwise movement is so approachable that it enables choirs to achieve a lush and expressive vocal tone. Interesting modulations usher in the final verse with flair before the spirit of reflection returns for an exquisite ending.
