Give Us Our Peace by : Langston Hughes : Rollo Dilworth
The great poet and essayist Langston Hughes used the power of words to speak out against racism; division; poverty and greed. In this new setting of the poem “Give Us Our Peace;” we first hear the African American spiritual “I've Been in the Storm So Long.” Once the historical context is established; a treble chorus – representing the role of innocent children – enter singing “Dona Nobis Pacem” (grant us peace). Finally; the mixed chorus enters with the bluesy/gospel theme that carries the rest of the song. Powerful and inspiring.
