Day of Grace
"Come, Holy Spirit, fill our lives anew." So begins the text of this Pentecost anthem. The mood is set with windchimes, flute, 13 handbells (C#5 - F#6), and ethereal voice scoring. The vocal parts gradually build and entwine to give the effect of the many tongues spoken on that special day. The bells ring for the majority of the work with some multi-measured rests. It is 96 measures in all.
