Song of Peace arranged by Jay Althouse. Choir Secular. SATB choir. Choral Octavo; Masterworks. Choral Designs. Funeral; Graduation; Masterwork Arrangement; Peace/Brotherhood. Choral Octavo. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.21788).
One of Frederic Chopin's most popular Etudes with a timely text and a skillful choral adaptation by Jay Althouse. "O, grant us peace in time of tribulation." The harmonically rich piece opens with tender, soft singing, gradually builds to a spectacular and full "Dona nobis pacem" (the only Latin text in the piece), and then fades to another striking pianissimo in it's final bars. Glorious, Romantic singing.
