Program: #01-39   Air Date: Sep 24, 2001

Early services for those who have departed.

Preservation of this program is made possible by a generous grant in memory of Kay Ann Ewers.

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. We were joined by some friends in the field who chose
from their own recordings what seemed most appropriate.
