When a beautiful melody meets a beautiful text, the result is magical. Such is the case with Dona Nobis Pacem by Frances T. Sinclair. Her original text imagines a world with no war or division and then compels us to do our part as peacemakers. The cello part adds such warmth to the anthem and is an opportunity to feature an advanced student player. Incorporates the partner tune, "I've Got Peace like a River."
