Peace of the River, sometimes known as Peace I Ask of Thee, O River, first came to life as a poem written by Glendora Gosling. Gosling, a woman in her early twenties, was on a riverboat on the Kentucky River for a Girl Scout training program for camp counselors. She showed the poem to fellow traveler Viola Wood, who set it to music. This song from the 1920s is still a campfire favorite and is here arranged for horn quartet.
