Pentecost, Sunday 12 June at 9.30am

This service is a eucharist.

Vierne’s Messe Solennelle combines the force of two organs and choir to highlight God’s gift of the Holy Spirit. From the bold solemnity of the Kyrie, the work moves through a triumphant Gloria and Sanctus, before the long-breathed phrases of the Agnus Dei, echoed between choir and “grand orgue”, bring the work to a wonderfully serene conclusion.
