War and peace have known no time frame so it is good to know that composers of earlier times have addressed this issue. Handel, in 1749, wrote this anthem for the peace of Aix-la-Chapelle. The third movement is a lovely setting for soprano solo and SATB chorus with words from Psalm 29:10 concerning the blessing of peace.
