The Last Invocation
Peace Is The Way
Women's Chorus a Capella *
In response to the USA invasion of Iraq, 2003 with Inspiration from the quote from A.J. Muste, "There is no way to peace; peace is the way."
In this arrangement for multiflutes of the original treble chorus setting, a four-note phrase, "Peace Is the Way", is layered repeatedly, one after another, throughout the eight parts, building slowly into sustained chords and a whispered final prayer.
