Other Info: Written for the Vasari Singers. Angel Song II is inspired by the idea of angels singing on Christmas night. The music weaves a gentle melody over the aleatoric textures of the accompanying voices. The text is designed to create the echo of the word 'Hosanna', but with no consonants, so that the music feels as if it comes from 'on high'. Recorded by Vasari Singers on the album Anthems for the 21st Century, on the Signum Classics label.
Angel Song II is published by Boosey & Hawkes in printed format.
