Dona Nobis Pacem

 

Dona Nobis Pacem, for SATB chorus; 3 minutes.
Premiered by the Santa Clara Concert Choir.  
Thomas Colohan, conductor.

Also available: Dona Nobis Pacem, for SSAA chorus.

Dona Nobis Pacem is a heartfelt prayer for peace.  The plaintive plea rises and blossoms from the depths until it falls once more to silence, awaiting a reply.  

In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.
Libera nos, o lux aeterna.
Dona nobis pacem.
In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.
Amen.

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Deliver us, o eternal light.
Grant us peace.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Amen.
