Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward men
Harmonia Mundi (aka. We Gather Here Together) is sung by faculty and students at the closing of every Intermuse Academy, and presumably at the closing of every other Kodály function. I can hardly hear it without bringing tears to my eyes. I think maybe the angels sang this.
16th Century German Chorale
English Text by Sean Deibler
We gather here together with joyful hearts and mind.
We raise our voices ever our distant souls to bind.
To remember in this moment of friendship, love and joy,
That music made together may one day heal mankind.
