Górecki Third Symphony: In search of peace

As I prepare for a sermon this coming Lord’s Day, I have searched for music that would express the peace of being overcome by the power of God. Jacob’s wrestling with God is a war for identity and only God can give Jacob a new identity. Haydn’s Missa in Tempore Belli is one answer to this war. At the end, when the chorus ends and the orchestra pauses, the bells commence is their cry for peace and restoration.
