Dreams of Peace and Freedom is a collection of 11 short songs written in 3 parts for
girls voices, with solos and a female narrator from the choir, and a leading male narrator,
by Sue Casson. The words for the songs are taken from Non Semper Imbres
by James Logie Robertson, and Rupert Brooke’s War Sonnets, and are interspersed with readings from the personal papers of David Maxwell Fyfe, a prosecutor at
IMT Nuremberg, and a champion of the European Convention of Human Rights.
The poems are favourites of Maxwell Fyfe’s, and Brooke’s The Soldier inspired him in his closing speech at Nuremberg.

“‘sights and sounds, dreams happy as her day,
And laughter learnt of friends, and gentleness,
In hearts at peace.’

Are not the prerogative of any one country. They are the inalienable heritage of mankind.”
