The sacred images of the dove are found throughout scripture. This creative text connects the dots between the dove of peace and the Holy Spirit being sent forth to comfort and encourage. A lyric melody rises slowly with an expressive contour, populated at times with lush harmonies and a flowing impressionistic piano accompaniment. The sensitive orchestration supports the anthem's noble arch. Innovative concept!
