Diptych on “Veni Creator Spiritus” is a two-movement piece based on the Gregorian chant “Veni Creator Spiritus.” They can be played as prelude and postlude in service (especially on Pentecost) or as a concert piece. The meditative first movement embraces two prominent ways to elaborate notes in Korean traditional music: grace notes and tremolos. The dance-like second movement incorporates multiple 6/8 rhythmic patterns that appear often in Korean folk music. The combination of medieval chant and Korean folk music could be an allegory of the apostles speaking in diverse languages on the first Pentecost. This eight-minute piece was commissioned by the American Guild of Organists for the 2024 Biennial National Convention in San Francisco, California. The first performance was given by Dong-Ill Shin at the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland, California.
