“Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people: kindle in us the fire of your love”: daily this ancient prayer is still used in this Thy Kingdom Come period before Pentecost/Whitsun. The almost-propulsive energy in the second movement – and the freedom and breath in the opening prelude – of this Handel Suite is a reminder of the life-giving energy which the Holy Spirit brings to creation and to our lives if we but listen to his voice. Enjoy Christopher Moore performing this with his usual rich touch and clarity.

“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you” – I love this prayer of St Augustine, first Archbishop of Canterbury from the seventh century, remembered in the church’s calendar today. In these days before Pentecost as we pray the gift of the Holy Spirit, and as you listen to Richard Cook playing the Toccata from Boellmann’s Suite Gothique, you may like to use the following prayer based on St Augustine’s words:

“Almighty God, ~ you have made us for yourself, ~ and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you; ~ so lead us by your Spirit ~ that in this life we may live to your glory ~ and in the life to come enjoy you for ever”.
