In challenging times, we look to music for clarity and consolation. This archival episode from the weeks after September 11, 2001, takes us through some musical moments - both rousing and touching.

Next week, Sara Fishko follows composer Aaron Copland's journey from patriotic icon to enemy of the state in episode 4 of WNYC Studios' The United States of Anxiety: Culture Wars. Tune in to the podcast on Tuesday, May 23.
