Max Filke (1855 - 1911) was the son of the teacher and organist Benjamin Filke. His mother Amalie, was a teacher's daughter, his grandfather teacher in Dürr Kunz village in goats neck, Upper Silesia. More of his relatives were also active as a teacher.

The organists and cantors that time were almost all proficient in their subject, and Max Filke inherited a considerable part of his musical talent from his father, who taught him violin, organ and piano. After the early death of his parents in 1864, he attended the Matthias Gymnasium in Breslau. His music teacher was dortiger Moritz Brosig, whose favorite he was soon.

Max Filke made ​​his musical studies as Domchorsänger Breslau, then at the School of Church Music Regensburg. In the years 1878/79 he worked as a cantor in Duderstadt. After further studies at the Leipzig Conservatory, he worked from 1881 to 1890 in Straubing as choir director at St. James and Director of Music. He then went to Cologne, where he worked for a short time as choirmaster of the male choir 'Liederkranz'.

In 1891, he was Director of Music in Wroclaw and singing teacher at the seminary in 1893 and teacher at Wroclaw Institute of Sacred Music. In 1899 he was awarded the title of Royal Music Director and shortly before his death in 1911 - after years of poor health - he was still given the appointment as professor.

The ideas of the Enlightenment led to the beginning of the 19th Century in the church of historical reform movements that have then taken as lasting influence on the church music of the time. Far-reaching transformations of an ideal musical style, which had clearly distinguished from the secular, "operatic" music of the time, took on the Catholic side by the representatives of the "Cecilian" and so was created on 1 Sept. 1868, the ACV (General Association of German Speaking Countries Cecilia).

In his numerous compositions for church purposes (measuring, Requiem, litanies, etc.), among which also many simple for small choir conditions are, the composer combines a productive talent with efficient technology, so this works to this day a certain part of church music forming practice. Is demonstrated by the performances of his Paschal Mass "Missa in G major in honorem Sancti Caroli Borromaei op 80". The importance Filkes lies in its efforts to approximate the style of the period with instrumental accompaniment church music. In contrast, his secular choral songs are very committed to the then prevailing taste.

Pentecost ("the fiftieth day") is the Greek name for the Feast of Weeks, a prominent feast in the calendar of ancient Israel celebrating the giving of the Law on Sinai. This feast is still celebrated in Judaism as Shavuot. Later, in the Christian liturgical year, it became a feast commemorating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ, (120 in all) as described in the Acts of the Apostles 2:1–31. For this reason, Pentecost is thought of today as the "Birthday of the Church."

Although originally created for accompanied chorus, I created this arrangement for Winds (Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, French Horn & Bassoon) and Strings (Violins (2), Viola, Cello & Bass).
