Acts 2:1-2; John 20:19 (adapted) [Latin]

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

Ascendo ad Patrem [I ascend to my Father] (John 20:17; 15:26; 16:22; 14:16) – Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina

Jesus represented as telling Mary not to touch him, by Hans Holbein the Younger.

John 20:17; 15:26; 16:22; 14:16 [Latin]

17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

Ascendo ad Patrem (published in Motettorum liber secundus, 5, 6, 8vv, Venice in 1572), composed by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594)
