Art & Spirit
Dona Nobis Pacem

March 4th is the first of two Sunday’s that WordSong will be with us at First Church Boston. First Church member Larry Thomas Bell will join WordSong composers Howard Frazin Tom Schnauber to compose three different pieces based on the text Dona Nobis Pacem (Offer Us Peace). Each composer will create three arrangements of their pieces: one for solo chorus, one for string quartet, and one for quartet and chorus combined. Very exciting!

On March 4th we will hear the solo chorus arrangements in the service, and after the service, Tom will work with the young folks on creating their own setting of this text. Everyone is invited. There will be something yummy to eat, good people to share it with, and it will be a lot of fun!

On Sunday March 11th we will be treated to the arrangements for choir and string quartet of the three settings of Dona Nobis Pacem during the service, featuring the wonderful Semiosis Quartet. And after the service we’ll have a WordSong presentation, featuring all three works in their various forms. This presentation is envisioned as a dialogue between the music and the listener, and it will be a fascinating experience.

Please join us both Sundays, March 4th and 11th. Feel free to invite your friends. All these programs are open and free to the public. As, of course, is our Sunday Service!
