Cantemus Pacem Mundi

This song was composed by Doug von Koss, who can be reached through his website This song is published in a small book/CD called “How Sweet the Sound” and is part of his “Noah Project.”

Doug von Koss, wrote this when 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 this Latin phrase as the text.
