Hope (2007) was composed by Philip Stopford for the dedication of the Spire of Hope at St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast. The service, held on September 11th, was attended by the Bishop of New York. A link was formed through the 9/11 tragedy and the ‘troubles’ of terrorism in Northern Ireland. The words are by Dr Carl Daw, and were written in response to the 9/11 tragedy. The sheet music and CD is available at www.ecclesium.co.uk. The choir is Ecclesium, and the composer is the conductor.
