Description

Available from Hal Leonard

This piece is written for an advanced ensemble with the ability to do up to 8 parts divisi. In order to bring more emotional weight to this anti war composition I created two sections that rely solely on the idea of descending stepwise motion. Each voice descends at different times and using different note lengths until finally coming to rest. The text takes Latin quotes, phrases and sayings and weaves them into a tapestry that carries a strong and timeless message.

Pacem non bellum – Peace not war

Pacem in eternam – Eternal peace

Dona nobis pacem – Grant us peace

Pacem in Terris – Peace on earth

Scelus est Bellum – War is a crime

Bellum est mundi virus – War is the poison of the world

Si vis pacem para pactem – if you want peace agree to keep the peace

Dona nobis pacem – Grant us peace

Pacem in Terris – Peace on earth

Pacem non bellum – Peace not war
