At the Coronation of Maynard and Liadain, King and Queen of AEthelmearc (Society for Creative Anachronism) on April 20, 2013, this piece was sung as a recessional. It was part of a larger effort to recreate a completely medieval coronation ceremony based on the Coronation service of Maximilian I, son of the Holy Roman Emperor, as titular King of the Romans in 1486, informed also by the Ordo of Mainz, from the 10th-century Romano-Germanic Pontifical. Developed by Master Steffan ap Kenydd of the East Kingdom (Steve Mesnick), it included four choral works. I was asked to build the music part of the program, mostly based on previous ceremonies done in the East Kingdom. The singers included over 20 people from all over the Kingdom of AEthelmearc, anchored by members of the Debatable Choir of the Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands (Pittsburgh, PA). "Da Pacem Domine" was written by the French composer Firminus Caron, who died in 1475.

This video was recorded from the choir loft of the site, so the choir is located behind and to the right of the camera.
