Word over all, beautiful as the sky,
Beautiful that war and all its deeds of carnage must in time be utterly lost...
— Walt Whitman

Dona nobis pacem
May 19 and 20, 2017 - 8pm

Ralph Vaughan Williams' Dona nobis pacem (Grant us peace) is one of the most important anti-war compositions of the 20th century. This masterful cantata for soloists, choir, and orchestra blends Biblical text with the emotionally charged poetry of Walt Whitman to create a searing indictment of the tragedy of war. Also on the program are Herbert Howells' Take Him, Earth, for Cherishing and Northwest composer John Muehleisen's Da Pacem, a commission by Seattle Pro Musica.
