The closing Agnus Dei (Oh, Lamb of God) movement from Columba Canticles reworks an ancient plainsong, eventually combining it with the lovely Irish slow air Slán le Máigh (The Bells of Shandon). Perhaps the closing words of the Agnus Dei – dona nobis pacem – conclude the work with a shared sentiment, which transcends individual faiths and convictions.
