Thrill to the stirring sounds of Vaughan Williams' cantata Dona Nobis Pacem at majestic Carnegie Hall. Written between the World Wars in 1936, the British composer's melodic plea for peace not only draws from the traditional mass, but also from a trio of powerful poems by Walt Whitman. Accompanied by the New York City Chamber Orchestra, the Masterworks Festival Chorus sings this stunning work, with solos by soprano Inna Dukach and baritone Markus Beam, under the baton of guest conductor James Rodde. The National Festival Chorus also takes the stage for favorites like How Can I Keep from Singing, Dickau's If Music Be the Food of Love and the spiritual My Soul's Been Anchored in the Lord.
