In the Christian tradition, God consists of three distinct Persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Reflection on the nature and activity of the Holy Spirit is a subject often left to theologians, but Spirit is invoked in every Christian liturgy and is the object of much devotion among Christians of Eastern and Western traditions.

Our Program “Veni Creator Spiritus” explores medieval musical depictions of the Holy Spirit as a source of divine creativity, inspiration, and illumination. Music for voice, vielle, hurdy-gurdy, harp, and recorder.


Meravelha was formed in 2012 in Boston for the purpose of making medieval music accessible to a wider audience through live performances. Using music, poetry, and movement, the ensemble tells stories that reflect themes illustrated within the songs and cultures of the 11th-15th centuries.  The name “Meravelha,” which translates as “marvel” or “wonder” was taken from the song “Non es meravelha s’eu chan” (It is no wonder that I sing) by Bernard de Ventadorn, a 12th-century troubadour.
