"Austin Lovelace's gentle The Peace of Christ is a gorgeous motet with a great deal of potential for use throughout the later Sundays of Easter." -AAM Journal, March 1997

"Austin Lovelace's The Peace of Christ is one of the lovelier recent unaccompanied works. While probably best suited for the Sundays after Easter, we could benefit from hearing and remembering Jesus' words of comfort and reassurance 'peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you' at other times during the liturgical year as well. What connections might be made if the anthem were sung, say, during communion?" -Grace Notes, August 1997

Description A serene, succinct, and very effective motet on this comforting passage (and we don't know of another setting of this text in common use).


Peace I leave with you,
My peace I give unto you;
Not as the world gives,
Give I unto you.

Let not your heart be troubled,
Neither let it be afraid.

Peace I leave with you, Peace I leave with you, Peace, Peace, Peace.

Text: John 14:27
