Program Notes

This work is an arrangement of my orchestra piece of the same name. It reflects the jubilant, creative nature of the Holy Spirit. The music is a combination of ancient liturgical chant and modern harmonic idioms, with a healthy dose of 16th-century polyphony for good measure!

Commissioned by Dr. David Robinson, Director of Bands, Tarleton State University, Stephenville, Texas.

- Program Note by composer

Veni Creator Spiritus ("Come Creator Spirit") is a hymn believed to have been written by Rabanus Maurus in the 9th century. When the original Latin text is used, it is normally sung in Gregorian Chant. It has been translated into several languages, often as a hymn for Pentecost.
