Written at a time of great upheaval in Austria, Haydn called this work Missa in Angustiis or Mass in time of Distress. Shortly after its premier Lord Nelson dealt Napoleon a stunning defeat and the work soon became known as the “Lord Nelson” Mass.

New Jersey native, Mario Lombardo’s lush settings of three of the Psalms of David round out this wonderful choral concert.

There have been very few periods during my lifetime when there hasn’t been a war somewhere… and at this very moment our thoughts are with all those in regions of the earth who are engaged in conflict.  I think we have to pray as never before for peace to settle as we sing Dona Nobis Pacem

Our performance of Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass was presented as part of the "Song of Peace" project. The project raised thousands of voices all over the world in a musical affirmation of the importance of peace in today's world, during the month which marks the 5th anniversary of the U.S. entering Iraq. This non-religious and non-political campaign raised a plea for peace for people affected by violence all over the world. Thousands of singers in seven different countries participated in performances of songs of peace throughout the month of March 2008.
