Memorial Day music

Posted at 10:06 AM on May 24, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

Try our music services over the Memorial weekend:

* The Current asks you to recommend an artist for a three-song set this weekend. Tell our DJs a little about the artist, and perhaps share a little bit about why the artist is important to you - or someone you want to remember & honor.

* Classical Music host Alison Young opens her feature Dominick Argento's Memorial: 'Evensong: Of Love and Angels' with this statement,

"Memorial Day has been celebrated in the United States since the Civil War to provide a public means of mourning those lost in battle.

This Memorial Day we're sharing a work written as a memorial for a civilian, a casualty of nothing spectacular except the end of her life."

Have a listen.
