                                     Notes and Links about Shanksville Performance

The choir of Church of the Resurrection performed "September Morning" for the 20th time in Shanksville, Pennsylvania on Sunday, September 11, 2022.  Annick Kanter-St. Hubert directed the work in the traditional morning ceremony.  It was a stirring rendition, with local musicians

Nicholas Carroll, piano, and Thomas Simpson, trumpet, assisting.  I'll post links and reviews to this performance as received.  Thanks to the folks at Flight 93 for their welcome and support.


​                                                        Special performer shout-out


I would like to recognize one of Resurrection's choir members who sang with us on 9/11/22.

Patrick Ryan is a member of the bass section and served a special responsibility on Sunday.  He narrated the opening lines to "September Morning" with distinction.  Pat is a former staff director and chief counsel to the House Committee on Veterans Affairs.  His office was across the street from the U.S. Capitol when the attacks began to be reported.  Thanks, Pat!
