Program Notes

This poignant and moving work musically tells the tale of a chorus of angels as they accompany two souls to the next world. Composed as a memorial piece, the music evolves from the initial "angels' song," their journey to heaven, and their return to comfort those who mourn. The voice parts can be performed on a synthesizer or by real voices and add an ethereal quality to this wonderful work.
