Peter Kolar’s “Veni, Sancte Spiritus” is an exhilarating processional anthem for Pentecost or confirmation liturgies. It features driving orchestral percussion, an exuberant shout chorus, and a recurring woodwind theme inspired by the soundtrack to The Mission. In the spirit of Pentecost, the piece is multilingual and multi-stylistic, with lyrics in English, Spanish, Filipino and Latin. The piece even offers an optional call-and-response refrain for assembles to learn its multilingual text. “Veni, Sancte Spiritus” was composed for and premiered at the National Association of Pastoral Musicians (NPM) 2022 National Convention. Hearts will surely be enflamed with the
Spirit upon experiencing this powerful work!
