Cantabile presents Ralph Vaughan Williams’ 1936 cantata Dona Nobis Pacem for chorus and orchestra. Written between the two World Wars, with texts from three poems by Walt Whitman, the Bible, and the Catholic Mass, Dona Nobis Pacem is a powerful and moving plea for peace.


‘O man greatly beloved, fear not, peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong.’

— Daniel X. 19
