To download the words the choir will be singing at the 9/11 Memorial Concert, please click here.  The words are very moving.  In Dona Nobis Pacem, René Clausen sets to music two poems by Walt Whitman.  Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Memorial portrays the event of the two planes crashing into the two towers,  combining Hebrew and Arabic text with that of Psalm 80 (in English).
