Da Pacem, Domine

Music by Melchior Franck

Da pacem Domine (Give peace, Lord) is the incipit of two different Latin texts, a hymn and an introit. Both have been the base for compositions to be used in church liturgy, beginning with chant. Paraphrased versions of the hymn were created by Martin Luther in German in 1529, "Verleih uns Frieden", also set by several composers. In English, the hymn entered the Book of Common Prayer, "Give peace in our time, O Lord".



Da Pacem, Domine

Da Pacem, Domine

Uses: General, Christmas, Peace Scripture: Psalm 85:8; I Peter 5:7 The universal longing for peace is the theme of this moving choral plea. Infused with a deep and rich harmonic ambiance, this choral provides a full vocal range for your choir to enjoy. The use of the celebrated Canon in D by Pachelbel adds appeal while the prayerful spirit of the text makes it excellent for both concert and sanctuary usage. Duration: ca. 2:45.

Arvo Part : Collected Choral Works

This new anthology of Part's choral works replaces the earlier one published in 1999. It is even more representative of Part's work, not only because of the recent additions, but because of the very welcome decision to include two selections from his major a cappella work, Kanon Pokajanen. The revised selection is also carefully geared towards the music represented on three CDs, all of which were recorded in consultation with the composer. introduced by Paul Hillier.

Various Arrangers : Songs For Peace

This powerful plea for peace makes a fine invocation, or opening selection for a concert dedicated to issues of nonviolence, war and peace. Easier than it appears, its clear tonal center provides a firm footing for introducing techniques such as sudden harmonic changes and gradually built tone clusters. Sung by the Peninsula Women's Chorus, Dr. Patricia F. Hennings, Director, at the 1992 Western Division ACDA convention in Honolulu, this piece is exceptionally rewarding for both singers and audience. "The fruit of silence is prayer..." Thus begins Mother Teresa's statement of faith and purpose "Fruits of the Selfless Heart", a poem which she entitled, "A Simple Path." This gentle setting with long note values is given in both a short version, and a longer version with a soloists' counter-melody. It is particularly suitable for use as a benediction, or for repeated singing during the administration of communion, whenever a mantra-like effect of sung prayer is desired. "When Diana's silver light" - Both sound and sense of the Carmina Burana text on the restful loveliness of moonrise are beautifully set in this lyrical, technically strong piece.

Songlist: Da Pacem, Domine, Fruits of the Selfless Heart, Dum Dianae vitrea (When Diana's silver light)
