Pretty much a neobaroque treatment with the Chorale in the Soprano throughout, but with a surprise romantic ending. Impulse reverberation added.
3 manual version of
Schantz at First Baptist Church of Riverside, California (1966) sampled by Jonathan Orwig
- Komm, Heiliger Geist, Herre Gott, Op. 65, No. 39
Nowadays it is equally good to give and receive, so please push the "lucky penny" to the left -
it will help me to continue offering music for your enjoyment.
- Chorale Text
Komm, heiliger Geist, Herre Gott,
erfüll mit deiner Gnaden Gut
deiner Gläubigen Herz, Mut und Sinn!
dein brünstig Lieb entzünd in ihn'n!
O Herr, durch deines Lichtes Glast
zu dem Glauben versammelt hast
das Volk aus aller Welt Zungen,
das sei dir, Herr, zu Lob gesungen. Halleluja!
--German version of Veni Creator Spiritus by Martin Luther, Erfurt, 1524
Come, Holy Ghost, come, Lord our own God,
And shed Thy heavenly gifts abroad
On us, and unto every heart
True faith and fervent love impart.
O Lord, who by Thy heavenly light
Hast called Thy Church from sinful night,
Out of all nations, tribes and places,
To Thee we render thanks and praises; Hallelujah!
--Irish Church Hymnal
