Steve Janco has crafted this wonderfully pastoral piece that puts St. Paul's stirring words to the Ephesians into our mouths. With a lively and confident refrain and melodic, chanted verses, we proclaim that "Christ is our peace, breaking down walls that divide," and recall that we are "created for a life of love and service." Steve's setting is fully bilingual, so it can be sung completely in English or Spanish, or the languages can be combined. The single vocal harmony line for the refrain is easy and effective. The parts for trumpets and C instruments provide additional character, particularly the delightful flute flourishes at each cadence in the verse. A rhythmic "turn-around" brings us confidently back to the refrain each time.
