A Hymn for the Lost and the Living for Trombone Choir
SMC SU788/ HL 142908
The several days which followed the tragedy of September 11, 2001, New York became a city landscape of empty streets and impromptu, heartbreaking memorials mourning our lost citizens, friends and family. A Hymn for the Lost and the Living portrays those days of supreme sadness and surprising resilience as the country mourned a great loss while coming together for help, comfort, and strength. This arrangement was created by Chris Sharpe for the 2013 University of North Texas Trombone Choir premiere which took place on September 11th.
