Trinity Requiem (2010), Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of September 11 2001, for Orchestra, Organ and Youth Chorus. Choral music of Robert Moran, featuring the 9/11 Requiem written for the Ground Zero church. Moran was commissioned by Trinity Wall Street (the ‘Ground Zero’ church) to write a Requiem for their youth chorus to commemorate the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001. The result is a heartfelt and heavenly work for angelic voices with organ, harps and cellos. Its simplicity and direct appeal rival that of Faure himself and it is sure to become a standard repertory work. While many of the singers were barely born at the time of the attacks in New York, the composer found inspiration in the all-too common grief found in war zones around the world (such as Kosovo and London) when children suddenly lose their families to violence.
