Veni Creator Spiritus

Program Notes:

Spanish composer Xavier Sarasola is a professor of violin, piano, and choral conducting. His works have been featured compositions in European choral competitions.Â

Conductor Notes:

This is a beautiful piece for double SSAA choir a cappella, reminiscent of Holst’s “Ave Maria”. A dramatic dynamic range and frequent suspensions give this piece intensity and a satisfying arc.

Veni Creator Spiritus,

Mentes tuorum visita,

Imple superna gratia,

Quae tu creasti pectora.


Come, Creator Spirit,

Visit the souls of your devoted;

With your divine grace fill

The hearts which you have created.
