Alleluia (In Praise of Peace)
for chorus (SATB) and piano by Wally Kleucker

Wally Kleucker

I set this piece for mixed chorus and piano to words by pupils of the lincoln School in New York

"Peace means the beginning of a new world.
It means that nations are friends;
It means joy to the world.

Peace is quiet and calm; it is rest;
It is silence after a storm.
It is love and friendship;
It is the world's dream of dreams.

Peace brings comfort and happiness;
It brings bread to the hungry;
It brings prosperity to the nations.
It means the strong respect the weak,
the great respect the small,
the many respect the few.

It is like spring after winter;
It brings sunshine into the world;
It is like sweet music after harsh sounds."
