Classical music inspired by 9/11
Composer Robert Moran was originally worried about writing a Requiem for a children's choir, particularly when the children singing it were unlikely to have a connection to the 9/11 attacks themselves. However, in writing the Trinity Requiem, Moran decided to use the theme of loss in general, taking inspiration from war zones from across history, to inform his piece, which was commissioned for the 10th anniversary of the attacks.
