Does Any Feast
Have music that can best Pentecost? I don't think so. Carlo gave us Durufle's Veni Creator Spiritus variations as preservice tonight (and tomorrow). Glorious! But my favorite is Luther's hymn: "Come, Holy Ghost, God and Lord!" A more stately, manly wedding of tune and text there is not in the entire corpus of Lutheran chorales.
