About Donald Reeves
Revd Donald Reeves is the founder of ‘Soul of Europe’, an organisation set up in 2000 to help people in post war situations, especially in the Balkans. Lord Hylton has been a firm supporter of the work from the very beginning.
Donald is not only a dedicated peace-builder, he is also a gifted amateur organist. He is particularly fond of Bach’s organ music which, he says, has nourished and sustained him throughout his 12 years of peace-building.
“Peace-building is not glamorous work. It demands boundless patience and persistence. Setbacks are frequent. Hope easily evaporates; it steals away in the face of cynicism, apathy, and sometimes sheer wickedness. This is why Bach’s organ music is so important to me. It is a testimony to the gift of hope, and therefore it helps redress the balance between a bleak view of human affairs to a saner and more hopeful perspective. I find it immeasurably life-enhancing and I am looking forward to sharing the connections between Bach’s organ music and my peace-building work.”
