David Barton has created a serene and gradually strengthening setting of this prayer for peace. Over an arpeggiated organ accompaniment, a three part structure is built up piece by piece, each part repeating until all are present. Altos enter first, singing the Latin words. Sopranos bring in the English translation, and the men underpin and reinforce the upper voices in building up the warm three part texture at the end
The accompaniment can be played without much difficulty on the piano instead of the organ.
Dona nobis pacemgrant us peace Pray that Jerusalem may have peace, Peace and felicity: Let them that love thee and thy peace Have still prosperity. Therefore I wish that peace may still, Still within thy walls remain, And ever may thy palaces Prosperity retain. Now, for my friends and brethren's sake, Peace be in thee, I'll say, And for the house of God our Lord I'll seek thy good always. Dona nobis pacem
Adapted from the Scottish Psalter of 1650
