This Sacred a cappella motet is an accessible piece, a setting of a beautiful verse from the traditional Latin medieval Sequences entitled Veni Sancte Spiritus, normally sung on Pentecost. On the theme of light, this piece is equally at home in a worship or concert context, Helvey’s writing is both economical and flowing, and the piece sings beautifully and effortlessly.
