In our days this epic frequently seems to be a cause of religious strife and warfare. Three thousand years ago it was a source for cultural and religious reform. It helped moderate slavery and abolish cultic human sacrifice. Emphasizing today its peace function once again, seems worth singing about. Peace of Abraham is a musical narrative, an epic for soloists, choir and organ accompaniment. Karl W. Luckert is a professor emeritus in the history of religions. Jonas Nordwall, author of the organ accompaniments, is a celebrated concert organist with appearances in North America, Europe, Japan and China. He has done no less than ten concert tours in Australia.
