“The Lord Is My Shepherd: Music and Meditation on the 20th anniversary of 9/11,” will be presented by Harmonia Chamber Singers and St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11.
Harmonia will sing works by Herbert Howells (Requiem), Edward Elgar (Lux Aeterna), Raymond Egan, Caroline Mallonee, Jean l’Héritier, “Precious Lord, Take My Hand” and “America, the Beautiful.” Robert Duerr will conduct. He will also speak about being present the evening of the attack, and helping at the site of the World Trade Center towers in New York City.
Duerr said, “The scene was unbelievable. Just three nights earlier, I dined with a friend in one of the tower’s restaurants. Outside afterwards, we marveled at such structural magnificence: two of the world’s tallest buildings! On the evening of 9/11, I walked in the same area, but now amidst debris and white ash.”
The event is free. Those attending are requested to register by Sept. 10 at SPCBuffalo.org, or by calling the cathedral office at 716-855-0900. The cathedral is located at 139 Pearl St., Buffalo. Also, this event will livestream at SPCBuffalo.org.
