"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music.

I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. I get the most joy in life out of music."

Dona Nobis Pacem

Dona Nobis Pacem is Latin for "grant us peace." It is a phrase from the Latin Mass during the Agnus Dei. The phrase has been used as the centerpiece for a number of musical works. For this one, usually classified as "traditional," the origin of the melody is unknown, but some have speculated that it was composed by Palestrina or Mozart. It is often sung as a three-round canon.
