OLDIE PODCAzT 87 (2009): The Pentecost Sequence dissected – Veni Sancte Spiritus

Pentecost_Ingeborg_Psalter_c_1195_smHere is an oldie PODCAzT made back in 2009.  Tempus fugit.


I started this one thinking that I could make a fast audio project and then move on.  Ha!

In this PODCAzT I dissect the Pentecost Sequence, Veni Sancte Spiritus, also used during the Octave of Pentecost in the traditional Roman calendar.

I give you some background on what a sequence is, what an octave is and then we start drilling.

First we hear the Latin text and a good translation.   Then see start looking at the structure of the prayer.

That is when things get interesting.  I found a few things I had never noticed.

This is a profound glimpse at mystery, folks.

This is the Roman Rite at her finest.
