In Memoriam: 9/11/2001

Let us remember, with solemnity and honor, those who died on 9/11/2001, and all those who have fallen in the War on Terror since that time.

I can think of no better piece of music to commemorate them than Allegri's Miserere (Psalm 51). For those who'd like to know more about it, I wrote about it in some detail a couple of years ago. Let this hymn be our prayer for the souls of the dead, and for ourselves as we remember them.

Thanks Peter.

But may I propose another piece of music that I think works?

Coopland's Fanfare For The Common Man.

(NOT the ELP version)
