Anthem of Peace, an uplifting choral setting by Mack Wilberg, combines 2 songs – the Estonian folk song, “The Power of Song” with the American spiritual “We Shall Walk Together in the Valley of Peace.” The piano accompaniment supports the choral writing very well. However, if you choose to use the optional brass parts, which consists of very thick voicing, you need to use a large choir. This song for peace and brotherhood is an excellent finale for a folk music or world peace program.
