Ten years on from the tragic events of 9/11, Ireland will remember those who died and those who are left behind, with a special performance of The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace by Karl Jenkins, a moving and poignant work which carries a powerful message of conflict resolution and hope for the future. The commemorative concert will also include Leonard Bernstein's hauntingly beautiful and affirmative Chichester Psalms for solo boy soprano, choir and orchestra, and spoken reflections by journalist Conor O'Clery, who was an eye-witness in New York on 11 September 2001, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon and poet Paula Meehan.
