Even more, it was utterly impossible to foresee the form that great event would take. Only one thing was certain; the hostilities would cease.
Frank Martin: In terra pax
So, in the summer of , I was to evoke the overflowing joy of the longed-for moment amidst the anxiety for the future, the immeasurable sorrow, everywhere the ravages of the war. I resolved to construct my work out of four sections and to look for suitable texts in the Bible. The second proclaims liberation, the outbreak of joy of a people feeling new hope and life. The third section introduces an entirely new thought: It is largely taken from the prophecies of Isaiah, who describes the servant of eternal God as one scorned, as a lamb being led to the slaughter.
The fourth and final part evokes the new Heaven and the new Earth, freed from all worldly matters, where all tears will be dried, where there will be no cries or suffering. And that meant that, in the words of Christ, I testified to the absolute requirement of forgiveness, without which true peace is inconceivable. But that requirement is so great that its universal acknowledgement on earth is unimaginable without the miracle of complete transformation of human thought and feeling. Therefore, for us, true peace can only be a hope, a determination, a faith, a bridge to an uncertain future — but a future we must imagine, even if we cannot believe in its material and earthly realisation.
Thus, I believed, could the end of the hostilities be celebrated, apart from the completely natural and spontaneous joyful utterances of thousands thronging the streets, their flags waving. To put it one way, the piece is a work for a specific occasion; but I myself have never considered it so.
The complexities raised by war and peace are eternal; military wars are not the only kind — and is peace not a constant longing of our souls? A pronunciation and translation guide is included in this composition that is equally appropriate for school and church use.
