Notes de programme :
The Anthems for Pentecost (1962), coming from four different books of the Bible; Psalm 98, Acts, Galatians and II Corinthians, suggested to me contrasting attitudes: "O Sing unto the Lord a new song", "God hath sent forth his Son", "...beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord"; all of which seemed appropriate to pull together in the opening Motet. It is, for me, the fulfillment of the divine circle of the Trinity, the substance of our faith as Christians.

The Collect (1549) is, rather, a more inward and shining joy in the presence of the Holy Spirit; a quiet, yet overwhelming sense of awe, punctuated by more worldly "wake up calls". The whole concludes with a hesitant, but finally, life affirming, world without end. Amen.

These two works, Anthems and Collect for Whitsunday, may be performed separately or together. The Anthems conclude at the end of bar 43. There follows a bridge passage which also serves as an introduction to the more contemplative "God, Which As Upon This Day".

Finally, the Book of Common Prayer, in its introduction to Whitsunday, indicates that "These Anthems shall be sung or said instead of Venite at Morning Prayer, and may be used at the Holy Communion except when the latter Service is combined with Morning Prayer".

--Robert Evans, January 1999
