A Prayer for Peace

By Joseph M. Martin and Robert Sterling

A bittersweet theme in minor mode lifts an emotive prayer for peace in this expressive octavo. The familiar Latin phrase “Dona nobis pacem” is placed musically in dialogue with treble and lower voices. These prayerful segments surrender to sequences of four-part writing that deliver a heartfelt cry for wellness and rest in a troubled world. “Peace is like the gentle snow descending on the wounded heart, and covering every scar with hope to let the healing start.”
