Music and Liturgy for Pentecost

Tonight at 6pm we are holding another of our Music and Liturgy for... sessions. We are exploring some less well known music and liturgy that will help us explore the theme of God's Holy Spirit. Andrew Earis, Andy Salmon and the HeartEdge Manchester Choral Scholars will be leading us. Those who have booked tickets will have the link but we will share the video later.

Featured music includes:

Come, Holy Spirit, come! (Diademata)

She sits like a bird (Enemy of Apathy)

Wa, wa, wa emimimo (Nigerian arr. Geoff Weaver)

Veni creator Spiritus (Taize)

If you believe and I believe (Zimbabwean arr. John Bell)

Like the murmur of the dove’s song (Bridegroom)

Send forth your spirit (Margaret Rizza)
