Review
"The Beatitudes as the unchanging Gospel for All Saints' make Curt Oliver's setting of 'Blessed Are the Peace Makers' a very welcome addition to the repertory. The baritone solo is neither extensive nor difficult (a great thing for those valuable choral singers who are not quite up to Fauré or Duruflé), and that--combined with the effective simplicity of the choral writing--makes this an unqualified winner!" --AAM Journal, September 2002

Description
A brief responsory based on Matthew 5:9. Perfect for use as a choral response to prayer or scripture; may be sung with or without accompaniment.

Text
Blessed are the peacemakers,
they will be called children of God,
peacemakers, children of God.
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God! Alleluia!

--Richard Leach, based on Matthew 5:9
