Dona Nobis Pacem

 

The All Souls Choir presents Ralph Vaughan Williams’ moving masterpiece, Dona Nobis Pacem, a reflection on war and peace, suffering, and healing that sets some of Walt Whitman’s civil war poems. The choir will be joined by guest musicians from the University of Maryland School of Music and the Washington Master Chorale to perform Vaughan Williams’ own rarely heard arrangement for string orchestra and piano. Scot Hannah Weir conducts, and the performance features soloists Steve Combs and Marlissa Hudson and guest pianist C. Paul Heins. (Recording not available.)
