Program Notes

Paul Jennings as created an outstanding setting for this familiar canon for beginning groups. Starting softly with the woodwinds, the piece builds gradually throughout giving every section a chance to play this marvelous melody.

- Program Note from publisher

Dona nobis pacem (Give us peace) is a round for three parts to a short Latin text from the Agnus Dei. The melody has been passed orally. The round is part of many hymnals and songbooks. Beyond use at church, the round has been popular for secular quests for peace, such as the reunification of Germany.
