Dona Nobis Pacem
Silverpoint, 20 x 30
This drawing was inspired by Ralph Vaughan William's choral masterpiece, Dona Nobis Pacem. I was first introduced to the piece when I participated in an "open sing" by a local chorus and was overwhelmed by the composer's juxtaposition of anti-war poetry by Walt Whitman and the Dona Nobis Pacem from the Catholic mass. This is the result.
