Prayer for Peace
Written in memory of the September 11 terror attacks, Philip Young's original work is a haunting piece full of aching and loss. A melodic prayer is underscored by original harmonies and a moving eighth note line that propels the piece inexorably onward. Frequent use of handchimes helps bring out various lines in the music. "Prayer for Peace" is a worthy musical choice for the ensemble looking for something different. 54 measures. Key of c minor.
