Classical WETA's Choral Showcase program on September 11th (at 9pm) focuses on the anniversary of the attacks 10 years ago. The centerpiece of that program (which also includes On the Transmigration of Souls by John Adams and Samuel Barber's Agnus Dei) is a work written for the 10th anniversary events at Trinity Wall Street--the "Ground Zero Church." It's called Trinity Requiem, and it was composed by Philadelphia-based composer Robert Moran. Classical WETA's David Ginder spoke with Robert about recording the piece a few months ago (for the Innova CD label), and about the idea of a Requiem being performed by a youth choir.
