Dona nobis pacem (English: Grant us peace) is a cantata written by Ralph Vaughan Williams in 1936 and first performed on 2 October of that year. The work was commissioned to mark the centenary of the Huddersfield Choral Society. Vaughan Williams produced his plea for peace by referring to recent wars during the growing fears of a new one. His texts were taken from the Mass, three poems by Walt Whitman, a political speech, and sections of the Bible.

Dona Nobis Pacem is distant from the Victorian choral tradition although its rugged explosive power might be heard as if written under the shadow of Verdi's Requiem. As in many of RVW's choral works (. Hodie) the words are anthologised from various sources. He draws on his favourite Whitman as well as the Bible. The Vaughan Williams was premiered by Albert Coates two years after Holst's death in 1934. RVW's Dirge is the processional heart of the work. Metcalf is mournful of tone but generally good as in his chilling 'you may almost hear the beating of his wings' in track 9. The chorus is superb as is Christensen who in her great 'Dona's points forward to the composer's Three Vocalises from the very end of the composer's life. Going by the Hanson recording of Song of Democracy Utah has a fine vocal tradition which I hope continues to this day.
