Peacemaker has a contemporary text by Earl Marlatt on the passing of war and the longing for peace. It is an a cappella work composed for Elliot Wold and the Wisconsin State University-River Falls Concert Choir. The poem is powerful and the music has an angular yet lyric style that supports the words. (Submitted by Philip Brunelle, Plymouth Congregational Church, Minneapolis)
