Angel Song II

composer
2004

 
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'. It is hoped that this movement might one day form part of a larger choral work inspired by the idea of voices from heaven.
