This song was composed by Doug von Koss while teaching in Italy as Italians were marching to protest the United States invasion of Iraq. He wanted a strong musical statement that would “lift the desire for peace to a more assertive and active place.” He borrowed a melody he had heard in Canada and used a Latin phrase as the text.
"Cantemus pacem mundi."
We sing for the peace of the world.
