sensitive and meditative Pentecost anthem, with the plainsong
VENI, CREATOR SPIRITUS incorporated in Young's original music.
Holy Ghost, I trust in thee
the needful grace to impart,
thou my mouth and wisdom be,
the Teacher of my heart:
help me in the trying hour
O help me in that hour.
To speak those given words of thine
filled with faith and love and power,
and eloquence divine.
O may I speak those words of thine.
Holy Ghost, I trust in thee.
Text: Charles Wesley, Luke 12:12
"Selah has published Carlton
Young's anthem for a meeting of United Methodist liturgists,
musicians, and artists on Pentecost 1988. Its atmospheric harmonies
and quotations of VENI, CREATOR SPIRITUS need a confident
band of intelligent singers, but I suspect it would repay their
efforts generously." -Journal of the Association of Anglican
Musicians, March 1996
