The inaugural concert in 2009 of the SCCS (the Simon Carrington Chamber Singers) ended with a performance of this touching piece by Geoff Wilcken, written in the aftermath of 9/11. The sentiment is timeless, beautifully set to music and infinitely worthy of a wider audience.

Simon Carrington

Composer's note:

The tenor line in measures 19–22 is the first phrase of the 16th century Lutheran hymn “Erhalt uns Herr bei Deinem Wort” (“Lord, keep us in Thy Word”) and should be brought forward in the balance.
