Ralph Vaughan Williams & Walt Whitman
Dona Nobis Pacem

 Both Ralph Vaughan Williams (composer) and Walt Whitman (poet) were soldiers. They experienced war personally, Vaughan Williams in WW1 and Whitman in the American Civil War. They were profoundly changed by the horrors of the experience. Whitman wrote persuasive but difficult poetry; Vaughan Williams, while writing glorious music for the church, became an agnostic and a pacifist. This cantata Dona Nobis Pacem (God grant us peace) Vaughan Williams sets three of Whitman’s poems including the heart-wrenching Dirge for Veterans, before turning to the Old Testament prophets and the Gospels to conclude that peace, not war, is God’s plan for humankind.

 The WCC Chancel Choir invites all choral singers to become “Friends,” joining them to sing for a more peaceful world, and to help alleviate hunger in the western suburbs.
