—NOTES ON MUSIC: Henri Mulet, a truly gifted composer and organist was a tragic figure. Once famous, he spent the last 30 of his 89 years in seclusion. By the time of his death, he had been completely forgotten. Not one French newspaper printed his obituary. Most of his surviving music is largely unknown. His works for organ have been called “expressive in a post-Romantic manner. The Veni Creator Spiritus (“Come Creator Spirit”) is a hymn believed to have been written by Rabanus Maurus in the 9th century. It is normally sung in Gregorian Chant as an invocation of the Holy Spirit.
