Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) — Pastorale sopra Intende qui regis Israel (2017) for organ
“Pastorale sopra Intende qui regis Israel” (2017) is based on a hymn of St. Ambrose. Parts of this hymn (“Veni redemptor gentium”) became sections of Martin Luther’s Advent hymn “Nun komm der Heiden Heiland” (and William Reynolds’s English translation “Savior of the Nations, Come.”)
