Pentecost is an event of great significance in the Christian church. It marks the day when the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples of Jesus Christ, as narrated in the Acts of the Apostles in the New Testament. This event, which occurred fifty days after Easter, is often regarded as the birth of the Christian Church. The Holy Spirit bestowed the disciples with the ability to speak in different tongues, symbolising the universal nature of the Church’s mission. It is a day of joy and celebration for believers, a reminder of the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in the world.

“A Pentecost Offertory,” is a tranquil composition that seamlessly weaves together the melodic threads of “Song 13” by Orlando Gibbons and the well-known plainchant, “Veni Creator Spiritus”. Known under many aliases, the hymn “Song 13” is often recognised as “Holy Spirit, Light Divine”, and carries a deep connection to the feast of Pentecost.
