As the United States turns its attention to the 10th anniversary of 9/11 this week, we offer an extraordinarily tranquil collection of works that engender a spirit of reflection, hope and quiet resilience. Peace features introspective music by the great composers of the past, such as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Rachmaninov and Shostakovich. This 2 1/2 hour collection includes contemplative works by many of today's best known composers as well, like John Tavener, Ennio Morricone, Michael Nyman and John Rutter. One of the most popular modern works found on Peace is Karl Jenkins' The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace, whose debut recording - in a turn of seemingly prophetic irony - was released on September 10, 2001.
As America remembers, we bring you Peace.
