      All Angels

      All Angels
      Thaxted Parish Church
      All Angels' repertoire includes favourites such as Schubert's Ave Maria, Barber's Agnus Dei, the Sancta Maria intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana, Delibes' Flower Duet from Lakmé, Pie Jesu from Fauré's Requiem and Offenbach's Barcarolle. They sing vocal versions of Pachelbel's Canon, Nimrod from the Enigma Variations and Geoffrey Burgon's theme from Brideshead Revisited, and also spirituals such as Steal Away. They are accompanied by a small instrumental group.

      Melanie, Laura, Daisy and Charlotte are a unique vocal quartet. The four girls were selected following an extensive nationwide search of schools, choirs and music schools. Each brings a different quality to the group: in combination their fresh, artless voices and outstanding musicianship are heart-rendingly beautiful
