On Sunday, September 11, millions of households around the country saw an amazing 9/11 tribute by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square on their Music & the Spoken Word broadcast. Narrated by veteran newsman, Tom Brokaw, the special entitled "9/11: Rising Above" was a salute to the indomitable American spirit in rising above the tragedy of September 11, 2001.

Music from that special Music & the Spoken Word broadcast is now available as a digital download from iTunes and deseretbook.com. "We know that many people will be moved by the Choir's 9/11 tribute," said Choir President Mac Christensen prior to the broadcast. Although full video of the special will not be available, Christensen said, "We know from experience that many people will want to hear the music over and over. This digital-only album—a first for the Choir—will enable our listeners to have this music so they can experience the feelings of the broadcast again."

Music from 9/11: Rising Above features the six musical selections performed by the world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square on the broadcast. (Brokaw's narration is not included.)
