Any ties between the Annunciation and Theophany?

Are there any hymnographic, or otherwise, ties between the Annunciation and Theophany (and Pentecost I suppose)? The parallel descent of the Holy Spirit upon Mary and upon Jesus seems like it would have some kind of significance.

No. Theophany, both in its hymns and in its iconography, has parallels with Christ's burial and resurrection, and with the redemption of Adam and Eve.

Alright.

So did any Fathers/saints write on the subject?
