To mark the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War, McMaster music student Jason Scozzari revived a moving piece of Canadian wartime music.

The composition, "Days of Peace," was written by Herbert Kohler in 1915.

The original sheet music is housed in McMaster's extensive "War Songs from the First Half of 20th Century" collection, located in the Archives & Research Collection at Mills Memorial Library. Scozzari, who is entering his fourth year at McMaster this fall, performed the piece in Convocation Hall.
