Da Pacem, Domine

Music by Melchior Franck

Da pacem Domine (Give peace, Lord) is the incipit of two different Latin texts, a hymn and an introit. Both have been the base for compositions to be used in church liturgy, beginning with chant. Paraphrased versions of the hymn were created by Martin Luther in German in 1529, "Verleih uns Frieden", also set by several composers. In English, the hymn entered the Book of Common Prayer, "Give peace in our time, O Lord".



Da Pacem, Domine

Da Pacem, Domine

Uses: General, Christmas, Peace Scripture: Psalm 85:8; I Peter 5:7 The universal longing for peace is the theme of this moving choral plea. Infused with a deep and rich harmonic ambiance, this choral provides a full vocal range for your choir to enjoy. The use of the celebrated Canon in D by Pachelbel adds appeal while the prayerful spirit of the text makes it excellent for both concert and sanctuary usage. Duration: ca. 2:45.

Arvo Part : Collected Choral Works

This new anthology of Part's choral works replaces the earlier one published in 1999. It is even more representative of Part's work, not only because of the recent additions, but because of the very welcome decision to include two selections from his major a cappella work, Kanon Pokajanen. The revised selection is also carefully geared towards the music represented on three CDs, all of which were recorded in consultation with the composer. introduced by Paul Hillier.

Various Arrangers : Songs For Peace : SSAA : Sheet Music

Various Arrangers : Songs For Peace

This powerful plea for peace makes a fine invocation, or opening selection for a concert dedicated to issues of nonviolence, war and peace. Easier than it appears, its clear tonal center provides a firm footing for introducing techniques such as sudden harmonic changes and gradually built tone clusters. Sung by the Peninsula Women's Chorus, Dr. Patricia F. Hennings, Director, at the 1992 Western Division ACDA convention in Honolulu, this piece is exceptionally rewarding for both singers and audience. "The fruit of silence is prayer..." Thus begins Mother Teresa's statement of faith and purpose "Fruits of the Selfless Heart", a poem which she entitled, "A Simple Path." This gentle setting with long note values is given in both a short version, and a longer version with a soloists' counter-melody. It is particularly suitable for use as a benediction, or for repeated singing during the administration of communion, whenever a mantra-like effect of sung prayer is desired. "When Diana's silver light" - Both sound and sense of the Carmina Burana text on the restful loveliness of moonrise are beautifully set in this lyrical, technically strong piece.

Songlist: Da Pacem, Domine, Fruits of the Selfless Heart, Dum Dianae vitrea (When Diana's silver light)

Chanticleer : And On Earth, Peace: A Chanticeer Mass : 00  1 CD : Joseph Jennings : 146364

Chanticleer : And On Earth, Peace: A Chanticeer Mass

With its seamless blend of twelve male voices, ranging from countertenor to bass, the San Francisco-based ensemble Chanticleer, celebrates the life of their founder Louis I. Botto on the 10th anniversary of his death. Five composers create a mass that evolves organically, as if written by one hand and the ensemble brings it to life. Using Gregorian Chant as a foundation this Mass evolves organically, as if written by one hand. These composers bring international prestige to the project as well as vastly different life paths and points of view. Israeli-born composer Shulamit Ran wrote the Credo to the Hebrew text "Ani Ma'amin." Well-known television composer Douglas Cuomo contributed the Kyrie. Turkish-American Kamran Ince composed the Gloria section in to a sufi text, while Ivan Moody, drawing from the Greek Orthodox tradition, delivered the Sanctus. The Irish folk and medieval music-influenced composer Michael McGlynn (Anuna) composed the Agnus Dei. To seamlessly travel from one composer to the next, Chanticleer offers haunting and beautiful pieces by Gesualdo, Part, Binchois, and Gabrieli.

Songlist: Da Pacem, Domine, Deus, Deus Meus, Respice In Me , Kyrie , (Gloria) Everywhere , O Vos Omnes, Aestimatus , Credo/Ani Ma'Amin , O Salutaris Hostia , Ravenna Sanctus, Peccantem Me Quotidie, Agnus Dei , Da Pacem, Domine

Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir : Arvo Part - Da Pacem : 00  1 CD : Paul Hillier : 907401

Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir : Arvo Part - Da Pacem

This collection of shorter sacred works by Arvo Part is the third harmonia mundi recording devoted to the music of the great contemporary Estonian composer. Da pacem includes some of his newest compositions as well as a sampling of works from earlier in his career. Led by Part's longtime collaborator and biographer Paul Hillier, the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, along with organist Christopher Bowers-Broadbent, illuminate the very essence of Part's "holy minimalism," with its roots in early-Medieval polyphony and deep engagement with text. A survey of the work of three decades, Da pacem illustrates the development of Part's triadic, bell-like "tintinabulation" style as the composer explores new colors and texture. The disc features the lovely Magnificat (1989), with its call and response form and the Salve Regina (2001/2002), with its unexpected underlying waltz rhythm. Also included are Part's Dopo la vittoria (1996/1998), a "piccola cantata" commissioned to celebrate the 1,600th anniversary of the death of Saint Ambrose and the title track, Da pacem Domine (2004) - a prayer for peace rendered with an astonishing stillness, in which, says Hillier, "each pitch is carefully placed in position like stones in a Zen garden." Of special note is the world premiere recording of Part's Two Slavonic Psalms (1997) - the first a-cappella work the composer wrote using the "tintinnabuli" style.

Songlist: Da Pacem, Domine, Salve Regina, Zwei Salwische Psalmen, Psalm 117, Psalm 131, Magnificat, An Den Wassern Zu Babel, Dopo La Vittoria, Nunc Dimittis, Little Tractus
