Lamentation and Celebration for chorus, brass choir, organ, piano and percussion was a tribute to the victims and survivors of the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing at its World Premiere in 1996. Burleigh rededicated the work to include the tragedy of 9/11. CAS first performed this work as a tribute to the victims and survivors of 9/11. This is timely as we reflect on the 20th anniversary of the tragedy. The CAS audio recording, made on September 12, 2002, in St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Racine, is thoughtfully interpreted with videography and photography by CAS member Karel Suchy.
