History never repeats itself, but it does some interesting variations on old themes. Brother, can you spare a fiver?
it will help me to continue offering music for your enjoyment.
- Chorale Text
Veni, Creator Spiritus,
Mentes tuorum visita,
Imple superna gratia,
Quae Tu creastif pectora.
Come Holy Spirit, creator, come
from your bright heavenly throne,
come take possession of our souls
and make them all your own.
