Veni Creator Spiritus

author of text

Veni, Creator Spiritus is one of only two hymns to have the honour of inclusion in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. The words are believed to be the work of Rhabanus Maurus, Archbishop of Mainz in the ninth century, and the tune is probably even older. It is the office hymn for Terce at Pentecost, and has also been used at ordinations since the eleventh century.
