    This Sunday to celebrate the feast of Pentecost, Kris Thomsett, Acting Director of Music, will be performing Duruflé’s Choral Variations on Veni Creator, interspersed with the plainchant being sung by the Lay Clerks. The piece is the final movement of Duruflé’s ‘Prélude, Adagio et Choral varié sur le thème du Veni Creator, Op.4, a monumental organ work based on the plainchant ‘Veni Creator’ (Come Holy Ghost). The variations start with a harmonised chorale of the chant, and then go on to use the different colours of the organ, from soft strings and flutes to the thundering sound of full organ. Between each variation, the Lay Clerks will sing a verse of the plainchant with the final toccata-like variation covering the procession into the Quire to mark the start of Choral Evensong for Pentecost.
