Choir performs Dona Nobis Pacem

Easter Sunday

One of the last pieces J S Bach wrote was his Mass in B minor completed in 1749, the year before his death.  The choir under Sadie’s direction, along with an ensemble of 3 recorders and cello will perform the last part of the last movement of the Mass, the Dona Nobis Pacem.

The petition to “grant us peace” closes the Mass.  It is a somber, deliberate and moving choral expression of hope and expectation.   What more poignant and appropriate plea for us today!

Grant us peace.  Grant us peace.  Grant us peace….
