“Let Thy Good Spirit” is one in a cycle of ten Communion Hymns, opus 25, composed by Chesnokov during his tenure as precentor at the Church of the Holy Trinity “at the Mud” in Moscow. The cycle culminates a number of opuses in which Chesnokov wrote richly sonorous harmonized settings of traditional chant melodies; the present work, however, does not use a pre-existing chant melody. The text is the Communion Hymn for the feast of Pentecost, prescribed to be sung during the Liturgy served on that day.
