Treble.
Mark Burrows wonderfully captures the essence of peace in this piece, well-suited to treble ensembles of all sizes and abilities. In the words of the composer: "Peace is much more than a feeling. It’s all of us coming together, reaching out, searching, striving. Peace is active!" The music expresses that need for action and coming together with beautiful forward momentum, making for an inspiring and uplifting piece. Also available for SATB Voices (BL1152).
When I received this text from talented lyricist Louise Phillips, I carried it with me for several months so that, rather than working on it, I could allow it to work on me. Finally, something began to emerge._x000D_

It starts with the peaceful, introspective. It’s the feeling deep inside of me:  peace. But as the text unfolds, we learn that peace is much more than a feeling. It’s all of us coming together, reaching out, searching, striving. Peace is active!_x000D_

And so, the piece follows that natural need for movement with a burst of forward momentum, as we all seek to find peace on the faces of the world._x000D_

And from the faces of the world come voices in many different languages, each joining together in a call for peace._x000D_
