(Da Pacem Domine)Melchior Franck/arr. Spevacek - Heritage Music Press
This lovely, late Renaissance/early Baroque work is complemented by a new, contemporary English text for general use by school choirs, and also a soaring descant which adds to the emotional impact. The English text, a powerful call for peace, is not intended to be a literal translation of the original Latin (which is also included as a performance option). Whether performed accompanied or a cappella, this piece provides a marvelous masterwork experience for young and developing choirs!
