Reading of the Names

This memorial music for chorus and orchestra was inspired by a visit to a small firehouse near Ground Zero. All the names of the 343 firefighters lost on 9/11 are sung in this composition. Individual names are not necessarily heard; rather, the harmonies represent their unity and brotherhood. All proceeds from this piece go to the direct support of FDNY firefighters. Score and parts are available. Composed by Jessica Locke.

Also available: a CD for fire departments in need of background music for their 9/11 ceremony.
