Mirroring the opening concerts of the Bach Choir's 2017-18 Season, the music presented in this performance seeks the peace so desired around the world. Over centuries musicians have written works that reflect this emotion and our concert will feature settings of the simple but powerful text, Dona Nobis Pacem, by several well-known—and some not as well-known—composers. Expressing the sentiment in the text of “Grant us Peace” encourages us all to seek this state of being. Conflict seems to be all around us. Perhaps filling the world with beautiful sounds will promote harmony beyond the concert hall.
