A simple but fetching and fun setting of the Tallis Canon, with a Pentecost text. 3-part with organ.
A mighty wind invades the world, so strong and free on beating wing:
it is the Spirit of the Lord from whom all truth and freedom spring.
The Spirit is a fountain clear Forever leaping to the sky,
whose waters give unending life, whose timeless source is never dry.
The Spirit comes in tongues of flame, With love and wisdom burning bright:
The wind, the fountain and the fire Combine in this great feast of light.
O Holy Spirit, bring us peace, With God, the Father and the Son:
We praise you blessed Trinity, Unchanging and forever One.
