Come Holy Ghost Our Souls Inspire
Based on the plainchant VENI CREATOR SPIRITUS. (For theory/music history buffs this is a Sarum plainsong in Mode VIII.) The tonality is major in feel with a lowered seventh scale step. Andante triplets in the bass are struck with mallets on suspended bells and accompany a single-line melody, which later turns into full chords. The last section ends with an "Amen" in free tempo.
