Poem Of Peace

for Organ

Jean Langlais (composer)


  • Organ


Poem of Peace reflects the acceptance of what can never be, the eventual release of near-anguish, and the still place within the soul. Having fallen in love with the dedicatee, Langlais came to realize that his love would not be returned and expressed these feelings using Gregorian themes in a quiet, spiritual contentment. Poem of Peace is but one example of the organ writing that has made Langlais' works a central part of the repertoire.
