the fourth movement of his First Symphony. We play it third. The trumpet
solo will be played by our solo trumpet player. It's named 'Blumine,'
which has something to do with flowers.”

Come Down, O Love Divine
Text by Bianco of Siena (d. 1434)
Translated by Richard F. Littledale, 1867
Ralph Vaughan Williams,
(12 Oct 1872 - 26 Aug 1958)
1. Come down, O Love divine,
seek thou this soul of mine,
and visit it with thine own ardor glowing;
O Comforter, draw near,
within my heart appear,
and kindle it, thy holy flame bestowing.
2. O let it freely burn,
till earthly passions turn
to dust and ashes in its heat consuming;
and let thy glorious light
shine ever on my sight,
and clothe me round, the while my path illuming.
3. And so the yearning strong,
with which the soul will long,
shall far outpass the power of human telling;
for none can guess its grace,
till Love create a place
wherein the Holy Spirit makes a dwelling.
