Mozart: Veni, sancte Spiritus, K. 47
Veni, sancte Spiritus, reple tuorum corda fidelium, et tui amoris in eis ignem accende, qui per diversitatem linguarum cunctarum gentes in unitate fidei congregasti. Alleluia.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful people, and kindle the fire of your love in them whom you, from separate tongues, have gathered the nations together in the unity of faith. Alleluia.

Callahan: Creator Spirit, by whose aid
sung by the gentelmen of the choir
Creator Spirit, by whose aid
the world’s foundations first were laid,
come visit every humble mind;
come, pour thy joys on human kind;
O Source of uncreated light,
the Father’s promised Paraclete,
thrice holy Fount, thrice holy Fire,
our hearts with heavenly love inspire.
From sin and sorrow set us free,
and make us temples worthy thee.
Give us thyself, that we may see
the Father and the Son by thee.
-John Dryden, 1693
