A Concert of Reflection took place outside the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square as part of commemorative events in the UK to mark the tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York. 11th September 2011.
The concert went on in the soaking rain on Sunday evening. Amazingly, rainbow could be seen through the rain over Grosvenor Square.
Sir Christopher Meyer, Ambassador to the United States at the time of the attacks on the World Trade Centre, paid his respects to the families of 67 British people, killed in the massacre and of all of the victims of terror.
Da Pacem Domine (Give Peace, Oh Lord) by Arvo Pärt, performed by the Byron Consort
The British Memorial Garden Trust UK Ltd in association with The September Concert Foundation and September 11th United Kingdom Families Support Group presented the concert that featured the Welsh Guards and the Harrow School Byron Consort Choir among its performers.
I was totally enchanted by the heavenly piece Da Pacem Domine (Give Peace, Oh Lord) by contemporary Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, gracefully performed by The Byron Consort choristers. Cheerful Welsh Guards band brought the concert in the rain to an optimistic finale.
Ten Years On Anti-War Mass Assembly by Stop the War Coalition demanded that no more lives should be wasted in Afghanistan. War is not a solution to any conflict. Peace and justice should prevail was the message.
Walking legend Hetty Bower, 106 spoke at the rally and was an inspiration to all the activists of UK peace movement. Hetty Bower reminded me of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother because of her radiant energy and tireless determination to always be at the nation’s service.
The Anti-War Mass Assembly brought together prominent speakers, including world renowned composer Howard Blake OBE, who performed his magic melody Walking In The Air, 106 year old iconic British pacifist Hetty Bower, artist and musician Brian Eno, Jeremy Corbyn MP, YouTube sensation Sanum Ghafoor, Stop the War Coalition Chairman Andrew Murray, ex-soldier Joe Glenton, who was jailed for refusing to fight in Afghanistan, and thousands of peace activists with anti war placards.
The dreamy lullaby music of Walking In The Air with awakening stuccato in the middle of performance by Howard Blake said a lot with no words. It went straight into people’s hearts. Naming the Dead Ceremony paid respects to those who lost their lives in the Afghanistan war. 120 black balloons were released in the sky above Trafalgar Square following the Ceremony.
