United Airlines Flight 93

Columbia, MD, September 2006 . . . A major role of art in any culture is to offer people a way to hold difficult or tragic events that enables them to move forward with hope and courage. At such times, art can comfort those in pain while giving homage to all that has been lost. By illuminating the goodness and wisdom inspired by the event, art can even increase a culture’s empathy and compassion, patriotism and pride.

Angels Over America is just such a work. A spectacular and stirring tribute to 9/11 victims and heroes, this 8-minute memorial video brings an entirely new perspective to a pivotal moment in our nation’s history. The work’s unique metaphor enables people to understand the events from an entirely different perspective than most will have considered. It is both powerfully grounded in the reality of the events and spiritually uplifting.

Angels Over America is dedicated to an America that lost its innocence on this day—but never its hope,” says Carolyn Long, author and co-producer of the video. “The events of 9/11 will be a part of the American consciousness forever. How they are held there will shape our future.”

Award-winning New York arranger and composer Mark Freeh produced the video from Ms. Long’s poem, “Angels Over America,” against the backdrop of his stirring arrangement of “America the Beautiful,” and moving renditions ofAmazing Grace” and ”My Country ‘Tis of Thee.”

Angels Over America is a collection of four poems and perspectives, tracing the evolution of awareness, emotion and understanding that lead to transcendence. This work celebrates the courage and resilience that are the hallmarks of the American Spirit, while providing perspective, healing, and hope.

A free, preview version of the video can be viewed or downloaded from the website at  The final version of the DVD with poem, a laminated poster or printed copy of Angels Over America, are available free to the media, or can be ordered online from the website, by email from
