"Symphony of Sorrowful Songs" (Symphony No. 3, Op. 36)

Funerals began today for children murdered in the mass slaughter incident at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

Henryk Gorecki composed "Symphony of Sorrowful Songs" (Symphony No. 3, Op. 36)

Although the themes are about loss through war, pegged upon the Holocaust, it is a poignant piece for the day:
The first and third movements are written from the perspective of a parent who has lost a child, and the second movement from that of a child separated from a parent.
