Because of recent world events, I’ve felt the need to raise a prayer for peace. Here, I’ve employed the ancient prayer from the Catholic mass which says, “Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; have mercy on us. Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; have mercy on us. Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; grant us peace.” It is a repentant, hopeful prayer, so appropriate for today.
This Agnus Dei is arranged for SATB. It was an exciting challenge for me to record the sample audio, singing the range of the choir (I even got down to the bass a couple times). The piece is appropriate for church or concert choir, early intermediate to professional level. The sheet music is available for purchase at http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/agnus-dei-a-prayer-for-peace-digital-sheet-music/20460838.
It’s my desire with this music to encourage people to hope in God and to strive to bring His peace to the world.
