In 2006, bendición de paz was selected as one of five finalists in the “Outside the Bachs” composition competition for new sacred choral works, and premiered by the Choral Union of the First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth, TX.

The text for bendición de paz is taken from the book of Numbers, Reina-Valera Spanish translation.

(English translation)
The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.
