Wordless Prayer is a lament in remembrance of the victims of September 11, 2001. This vocalise expresses a sorrow for which no words exist. Its g-minor melody weaves between the soprano and alto voices, and Eb major-7th chords are poignant sonorities. A middle section in Bb major conveys hope amidst this lament of resignation and acceptance. If you omit the dedication, the music is appropriate for a contemplative moment in a worship service or ceremony.

Choose the version for SATB or SSAA. You may perform Wordless Prayer a cappella or with piano or organ.

Also available in versions for piano and organ.
