Holy Spirit, Gentle Dove - Steven Curtis Lance
SAB and piano or organ with text by the composer: A tender and moving prayer to the Holy Spirit. Also a beautiful anthem for ordinations and baptisms (Easter Vigil!)

I Will Not Leave You Comfortless - William Byrd
SATB Choir a cappella or lightly accompanied. Dating from 1607, I will not leave you comfortless (Nos vos relinquam orphanos) is a delicious anthem - two minutes of Renaissance bliss - employing wonderful imitation between the voices as well as having interior and terminal Alleluias. Originally for five voices, (AATTB), this is an arrangement for SATB retaining the all harmonic complexity and beauty of the original. Your choir will love this! Text from John 14. Perfect for Pentecost, but great anytime.
