"Its text means 'grant us peace.' The piece unfolds slowly and gently, exploring the wide range of sounds available to men's chorus along the way - from the very low and hushed to the very high and powerfully loud. Its main melodic idea is a simple line ascending stepwise from E-flat to B-flat, then rising to C and finally settling back down on B-flat. This melody occurs three times over the course of the piece: at the beginning, sung by the first tenors; in the middle of the piece, sung by the baritones as the music enters the harmonically dark E-flatminor; and at the end, sung again by the baritones following an intense climax." - Joseph Gregorio

Use: funerals, memorial services, solemn occasions, concerts; accomplished church, college, community, professional choruses

    this first time i heard this was when it was performed by the Rutgers Glee Club. it was exquisite! i had to get my hands on it and the music oozes off the paper! this (besides Bach's Dona Nobis Pacem from Mass in B minor) is probably one of...

    the most glorious settings of those words ever composed!
