Amazing Peace is a beautiful and deeply moving poem from Maya Angelou. Here she inspires us to embrace the peace and promise of Christmas, so that hope and love can once again light up our holidays and the world. Angels and Mortals, Believers and Nonbelievers, look heavenward, she writes, and speak the word aloud. Peace.

Amazing Peace is Maya Angelou's radiant affirmation of the goodness of life and is a touching celebration of the Glad Season that will resonate with people of all faiths.

Also included in this program is her Grammy Award-winning reading of On the Pulse of Morning, the poem that she created for the inauguration of President William Jefferson Clinton in January 1993. Nearly 13 years later this poem remains just as profound a listening experience.
