Description

This great choral symphony is divided into two unequal parts, the first a setting of the ninth-century Whitsuntide hymn Veni Creator Spiritus, the second of the closing scene of Part II of Goethe's Faust. This skilful arrangement from the talented young Welshman, Christian Jenkins, is of the final chorus, 'Alles Vergangliche', music that comprises roughly the last five minutes of the Symphony. It begins with Mystic Chorus, drawing mankind towards heaven. This builds in intensity to a triumphant instrumental coda, an affirmation of faith in both God and man.
