Music Notes

Veni Sancte Spiritus (Lauridsen)

Among the most beautiful chants in the Gregorian repertoire are those for the Feast of Pentecost. The Introit, Spiritus Domini replevit orbum terrarum (The Spirit of the Lord fills the whole world), in particular, aurally depicts the restless, renewing movement of the Holy Spirit. The choral writing in this morning’s anthem, a setting of the sequence for Pentecost which comprises the fourth movement of Lux Aterna by Morton Lauridesn (b. 1943), is spirited and jubilant. It’s chord modulations, like the Gregorian Chant itself, work especially well in portraying the Holy Spirit’s utterly free movement, how He goes wherever He wills (John 3:8). --Dennis Powers
