FLIP THROUGH SCORE PAGES
by Stuart Hinds
Overtone Choir Spektrum (Prague, Czech Republic) Jan Stanek, conductor
One of Stuart Hinds’s most widely performed pieces for chorus with overtone singing, Pacem is a moving setting, in Latin, of three lines from the Catholic liturgy:
______I leave you peace.
______My peace I give you.
______Peace be with you always.
A flowing, chant-like melody is passed among all sections, as other sections sustain drones with overtones, at times improvised and at other times carefully prescribed. The result is a brief but moving hymn to peace.
