In my creative response to the tragic events of September 11th, it was important to include reference to Samuel Barberâ€™s Adagio For Strings. The Adagio speaks to the very spiritual core of my being â€“ excruciating in both its beauty and its profound sadness. As I worked on this quilt, I discovered that the Adagio is in fact Barberâ€™s Opus 11 â€“ hence the title.
