I am looking a work or works to pair with Vaughan Williams’s Dona nobis pacem (reduced instrumentation version), preferably with the same theme – (war and) peace.February 2, 2019 at 9:31 am #586654

You might take a look at Haydn’s “Missa in tempore belli” Hob.XXII;9 – it’s about the same length and orchestra size.
Hope that helps!

You may want to take a look at ‘Here, Bullet’ by Reginald Unterseher
It is seven songs utilizing the poetry of Iraqi veteran poet, Brian Turner. I paired the third movement, Sadiq with Beat Beat Drums from RVW’s DNP. I find that the Walt Whitman juxtaposed with the Brian Turner is really interesting to me because of how differently we think of veterans now than when Walt Whitman wrote the poems included in DNP. Obviously, we’re not doing as well as we’d like to be as a society in that arena. But, I do think that in Walt Whitman’s time, the general public thought the veteran would just come back to his farm and be happy. The Brian Turner poetry deals with the fact that the veteran is forever changed by his/her experiences in a way that the Whitman reflects, but doesn’t deal with directly …
It may not be what you are looking for … but, I think it’s definitely worth looking at as well.

Mack Wilberg wrote two pieces that are intended to be paired with the RVW:
Requiem, 1st movement (prologue to RVW)
Let Peace Then Still the Strife (epilogue to RVW)
Craig Jessop could tell you more. He just conducted this program at Carnegie Hall last month.
