    Randall Thompson's Testament to Freedom celebrates the bicentennial of Thomas Jefferson's birth with lyrics taken from his writings, and presents an uplifting view of our nation during times of war. Ralph Vaughan Williams' well-known Dona Nobis Pacem (Grant Us Peace), composed in response to World War I, draws from Walt Whitman reflections on the Civil War. Paul Moravec's Songs of Love and War are settings of letters of American servicemen and their loved ones.
