J. S. Bach on the Holy Spirit

Dr. David Maxwell, the Louis A. Fincke and Anna B. Shine Professor of Systematic Theology at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, shares some insights about the Pentecost hymn, “Come, Holy Ghost, Creator Blest” (LSB 498), from the organ in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus. He shares how J.S. Bach transforms, as only Bach can, an ancient hymn to the Holy Spirit.
