The Song of Angels is one of Opus Anglicanum’s meditative programmes on spiritual themes.  It celebrates angels as invisible companions and guardians, as spiritual warriors, as muses of creativity and as messengers, heralds, warriors and healers.  Featuring the first performance of Seraphim commissioned from young Australian - American composer Melissa Dunphy, together with Russian Orthodox chant, Gregorian chant, Palestrina, Byrd, Gibbons and Howard Skempton’s 2006 And there was War in Heaven, an Opus Angllicanum commission.

The narrated text, read by Zeb Soanes, is from Spenser, Suso, Eliot, Spencer, Traherne, and Alcuin.
