About the piece

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Liberty was composed a few months after September 11, 2001. The text is from the opening of Emma Lazurus’ poem “The New Colossus”, and serves to remind us of the noble ambitions which tie us together as a nation.
