NYCKim from New York, NY

Thank you for sharing such an amazing work in such an appropriate way. I agree that this was a long and trying day. I had physically removed myself from the city in order to avoid all of the crowds and what I feared might be an overwrought or inappropriate atmosphere on this 10th anniversary. But as I returned home to my beloved NYC on the night of Sept. 11 and saw the colorfully lit skyscrapers rise before me, I found myself tuning in to WNYC and feeling awash in the serenity of John Adams' "On the Transmigration of Souls".

The synchronicity was almost emotionally overwhelming. I continued my drive home completely transfixed by how the mood of the music matched the mood of the city that night. It's exactly what we needed, when we needed it.
