Far from dreading an encounter with the Iroquois, Fr. Garnier often told us he would be quite content to fall into their hands and remain their prisoner if—while they were torturing him—he at least had a chance of instructing them as long as his torments lasted. If they allowed him to live, it would afford him a golden opportunity to work for their conversion, which was now impossible, since the gateway to their country was closed as long as they were our enemies.
— Father Ragueneau (Jesuit Relations)

ENI SANCTE SPIRITUS, often known as the “Golden Sequence” is one of the great jewels of the Church, prescribed for the Pentecost Mass and its octave (not including the following Sunday.)

Jeff Ostrowski recently made available several versions of the score, including a beautiful (optional) organ accompaniment which you can listen to here:

SECONDLY, HERE IS MY SETTING IN ENGLISH, which uses the translation by Edward Caswall from the Lyra Catholica. Included (in one file) are separate versions for organ or piano and with optional lower key.
