Pentecost Sequence

In this episode of The Commons, Jesse Manibusan and Remi Fonseca Bauer discuss the origins of sequences in the Church and their role in the liturgy today, as well as the role of Paraclete, "God who accompanies," in our lives.

Jesse’s spark of a simple melody inspired Remi to compose a new song that eventually became a setting of the Pentecost Sequence. Utilizing the official poetic text of the Lectionary, this gentle setting truly expresses the sweet consolation and hope of the Holy Spirit.


The Commons is a series of unplugged interviews with the top Catholic recording artists. These are candid interviews and intimate performances by the top contemporary Catholic musicians.
