Masses by Pierre de la Rue, Morales, and the Gregorian service in memory of those who fell September 11, 2001.

Note: As some of you may know, the production of Millennium of Music
is at WETA, barely a mile from the Pentagon. For us at the program, the
only appropriate tribute is with the music used for centuries as solace, tribute,
and rememberance. Our thoughts and hearts go out to those who have
been touched by these events.
