Iraq. Darfur. The Middle East... Our neighborhoods. Our own heart, the cradle of the peace or war we find around us.
Sweet Peace is a moving collection of international classical songs that celebrate peace or express the tragedy of war. The texts of this album span five previous centuries, yet the emotions expressed are entirely of our time: the joy of those reunited with loved ones at war's end, the anguish of a soldier's widow; an individual's desperate yearning for inner peace and the relief of one whom it has visited. "....sweet peace and consoling peace, that places a cool kiss upon all scars..., that descends upon the weary..." Georges Boutelleau
Will our human nature ever evolve to keep pace with our technical ability
to destroy one another? Perhaps if it is our priority. Think peace. Speak
peace. Act peace. Pray for peace. And sing peace.
