for SATB and organ, or brass ensemble, or brass quintet The Face of Peace is a beautiful setting (to an English translation) of verses by the French poet Paul Eluard, written in 1951. Chilcott combines the gentleness of the poem's vision with a cast-iron strength that comes out of its message - a message as poignant today as it was then.
