A dozen years after 9/11, an American composer has turned memories of grief into survivor songs - some of them surprisingly joyous.
Composer Jake Heggie says Sunday his new album titled "Here/After (songs of lost voices)" is meant to create a sense of hope.
The singers on the album reflect the stories of actual 9/11 survivors from around the country. Their songs express thoughts about lost loved ones as they sort belongings left behind. One set of songs is called "Pieces of 9-11."
