In the wake of the Civil War in America, a critic for a popular music journal remarked that “we need art and music. Let us keep those good angels on our side.” As we remember the tragedy that occurred on September 11, 2001, this nineteenth-century perspective offers comfort, as do reflective, contemplative, and healing elegies of Arnold Bax, Max Bruch, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Gustav Mahler.
