Songs of Peace

Vocal Score

Will Todd


  • Contains 6 movements about love and loss
  • Easy to intermediate level
  • Written in memory of Will Todd’s mother
  • Optional jazz trio accompaniment available



Although not a conventional Requiem, Todd’s six-movement work about love and loss might be appropriate in a memorial context, but should by no means be confined to it.

It can also be seen as ‘life-affirming’ work, characterised by Todd’s recognisable jazz-infused
harmonic language, memorable melodies, and powerful and personal texts.

Songs of Peace may be performed complete or as separate movements, two of which are scored for upper voices.

It includes a piano accompaniment with optional bass and drums.
