About Gifts of the Spirit:


Gifts of the Spirit (2005) is a festive Anthem for Pentecost Sunday, but it is appropriate for any celebration of the Holy Spirit, whether within the context of a liturgy or as a concert or festival choral piece.  The text takes its inspiration from the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit, namely, Wisdom, Understanding, Right Judgment, Courage, Knowledge, Reverence, and Awe in God's Presence.

While I do not have a live human recording of this piece, I have included a MIDI audio rendering of the score to give you a sense of the piece.  As always, bear in mind that electronic choral/vocal samples are unable to interpret lyric texts, so you will not hear any of the text of the piece, only "ah's".
