Grant Us Peace

Written in Poulenc’s unique religious style that melds the sacred and profane, his joyful, radiant Gloria is the composer at his very best. Written in response to Vaughan Williams’ personal anguish after service in World War I, his Dona Nobis Pacem emphasizes reconciliation and peace.
