“Song for Peace” commences with fingerpicking on a 12-string, nice melodic phrasing on electric guitar and a mellow bass A tranquil feeling is created. The music breathes well creating a nice space for the vocals. The electric guitar work is very tasteful as gentle motifs fill in the peaceful music landscape. Peter enters singing, “In grief and anger the mother cried. For your war my son has died.” Peter sings the meaningful lyrics with a genuine tenderness that touches the heart. "Song for Peace" speaks of humanity’s perpetual history with hatred and war. “There's always been war. And war will always be.” The song moves towards the beautiful chorus after Peter sings, “And I heard a whisper in the wind…there’s a way for all this to end.” The chorus appears like a dove or a warm light and washes over you with the words of peace: “Shalom, Salam, Pace, Nabadda, Shanti." These are words you can sing along with. Each word sounds beautiful and promising.
