4. Eric Ewazen - A Hymn for the Lost and the Living
Eric Ewazen was teaching a music class at the Juilliard School when the 9/11 attacks happened. In his programme note for the piece, he described the inspiration for the piece: "A Hymn for the Lost and the Living portrays those painful days following September 11th, days of supreme sadness."
