Motet Notes

Donald Grantham: We Remember Them


We Remember Them was composed in 2005 for a memorial ceremony honoring the victims of the notorious shootings at the University of Texas Clock Tower that occurred on August 1, 1966. The text, from the Hebrew Union Prayer Book, portrays a simple journey from darkness to light, through grief and hope.  This piece was performed on September 11, 2011 at the Faith Communities of the Back Bay 9/11 Memorial Service and seems fitting for the Feast of All Saints.
