The birthday of the church is described in detail in this interesting anthem scored with thoughtfulness for two-part choir. Delivering the message of the “rushing, mighty wind” and the “tongues of flame,” this anthem sets the tone for a celebrative service honoring the Spirit of God among us. The lilting 6/8 meter along with the minor mode add a singular quality to the music. This anthem is easily and quickly learned!
