Doane Choir and Abendmusik to Present "Dona Nobis Pacem"
This Sunday, the Doane Choir will join with the Abendmusik Chorus and Orchestra to present a special musical tribute to America's veterans. A selection of beloved American music will be performed in addition to Ralph Vaughan William's powerful and timeless cantata, Dona Nobis Pacem (translated: "Give us peace").
Vaughan Williams composed the work in the early 1930s, using texts from the Mass, the Bible, and three poems by American poet Walt Whitman. Dona Nobis Pacem is a poignant and compelling glimpse at the nature of war and the many important questions it raises.
The concert will take place at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, at First-Plymouth Congregational Church in Lincoln (2000 D St.).
