Peace on Earth

for SSATB Choir, unaccompanied

An English translation of the poem “Friede auf Erden” by Conrad Ferdinand Meyer (1825-1898) is set for SSATB choir unaccompanied. Referencing the Christmas story, this setting brings to life the text with lush harmonies freely changing key centers as the story progresses. Each of the four stanzas ends with a variation on the musical material that sets the concluding “Peace, peace on Earth!” This lively and engaging work is fun to sing and composed in a way that the text comes through to the listener with ease.
