Many of us are familiar with “Ave Maria” by Giulio Caccini. In this arrangement, “Dona Nobis Pacem” has replaced the “Ave Maria” text and is a great alternative for public school use where the “Ave Maria” text may seem inappropriate. This piece has a beautiful melody with an accessible range for most women’s choirs. It may be sung in unison, SSA, Unison with TTBB, or SSA with TTBB. (The TTBB parts are included in the arrangement.) A part for violin is also included. This arrangement creates many possibilities for a stunning performance.
