Sunday Music - Feast of the Pentecost

The Great Fifty Days has now culminated and we celebrate the birthday of the Church - church communities who observe this feast will see LOTS of red today, whether by what we wear to the celebratory decorations that adorn the church.

"Come Down, O Love Divine" (hymn tune "Down Ampney" by Ralph Vaughn Williams), is the featured hymn in this video. And as if the hymn was not beautiful enough in and of itself, images of the Holy Spirit are featured throughout the hymn.  About half way through the video, the hymn ends and the "credits' begin, as the images are all credited at to their origin, accompanied by piano, with the hymn "Be Still, My Soul".

What hymns did you sing today or what music did you hear that spoke to you? What images did you see today that brought the Holy Spirit into you? Where did you celebrate and worship today?

  1. We sang this Post Communion - & Down Ampney is just a few miles away from here :)
    At the Offertory we had "O thou who camest from above" - which remains for me one of the most perfect prayers in music...We sang it at my first Mass, at my induction here & will doubtless sing it at any other service with particular personal significance, ever...
