This tender and comforting work is a “passing of peace” as its simple yet elegant melody washes over the listener, gently unfolding its text with increasing texture: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you, not as the world gives; do not be afraid.” The Hebrew word shalom forms the refrains, and whispers of the word “peace” further paint the spirit and promise of the text. Set for TBB choir with piano and optional violin, this piece is equally at home in worship or concert settings. Also available in SATB (seen in the video above) and SSA voicings, as well as a vocal duet version.
