"You'll Never Walk Alone" from Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel and he great Quaker hymn "How Can I Keep From Singing" represent our response to the nightmarish events that occurred in our nation on September 11th. It was a significant date for the chorus, as it was the first rehearsal; rather than cancel after two years of planning and struggling, it was decided to go on and remember those who had perished in the terrorist attacks on that day. The Quakers, or Friends, are a nonviolent peace loving, pacifist religious group and this is their greatest hymn.
