About the Work
When I found “Peace,” I discovered that many other composers had already set it to music but I was stubborn enough to sit down and work on my own. The beauty of the poem moved me. I wanted to create something as simple and meditative as Sara Teasdale had. I loved the vulnerability in recognizing the effects of others and the courage to say, with other words, “trust me.”
Premiered by Coro, Dr. Jeb Mueller, conductor.
