A piece initially inspired by the the centenary of a local church with a Presbyterian heritage, Hymn of Peace went on to become more of a universal plea for peace and tolerance.

It is scored for a moderately-sized orchestra and should be within the capabilities of good high school ensembles. The repeated choral lyrics are designed to make it easy for audience participation in the piece if desired. It could be a suitable addition to a Christmas concert.

The General MIDI playback via Scorch gives a very poor impression of what the piece is supposed to sound like. The best way to view and listen is to click on the LISTEN TO MP3 button above the Scorch bar. You may then page through the piece in time with the music by clicking the Next Page button on the Scorch bar. This is still a virtual performance, but sounds much closer to a live performance, except for the lack of words by the 'choir'.

Please email me if you are interested in performing the piece. I would like to obtain a live recording.

The lyrics, which are almost impossible to read on screen in the full score are reprinted here:

Come let us sing for a child of the universe,May peace on Earth for ever reign. Brothers and sisters dear, Keep us throughout each year, Filled with true hope and joy, love and cheer. Fear not war and strife,In this blessed life, Let love enfold us all,Here upon Earth. Brothers and sisters dear, Keep us throughout each year, Filled with true hope and joy, love and cheer. Fear not war and strife,In this blessed life, Let love enfold us all,Here upon Earth. Fear not war and strife,In this blessed life, Let love enfold us all,Here upon the Earth.
