Product Description

Product Description

From the label that brought you Il Divo, Celine Dion and Barbara Streisand comes the truly amazing Angelis. Defying the expectations of classical music with an emotion and vocal maturity that belies their youth, the group's combined skill forms a sound that is truly traditional with a vibrant, modern streak. Following an exhaustive search that lasted 2 years, the best new choral voices in the UK have come together in a stunning formation. Featuring six remarkable young choristers with six equally striking voices, they release their self-titled debut album on Syco Music/SonyBMG, November 6th.

Amazon.co.uk

Simon Cowell's latest project – which allegedly took two years to reach fruition – sees the impresario hand-pick six of the UK's finest choral singers, put them in a studio with Il Divo producer Steve Mac and record some of the nation's most-loved Christmas songs. The six choristers in question, aged between 11 and 14, all share an undeniable talent and perform wonderful versions of these timeless songs. That they are very comfortable and confident with the chosen material is evident from the start. Whilst not wildly diverse, there's a decent range of tunes, from Sarah McClachlan's "Angel" and "Walking In The Air" through contemporary versions of hymns such as "O Holy Night" and "Pie Jesu" to less obvious interpretations of Enya's "May It Be" and Eva Cassidy's "Over The Rainbow". None of these versions will send revolutionary ripples through the Christmas album market of course; but in such masterful - if youthful - hands they become even more languorous and transcendent, making for a divinely horizontal Xmas listening experience. --Danny McKenna

The first track (Angel) is, in my opinion, brilliant. You may not like it, so see it (the video) yourself on: [...]
I bought the album having heard that track, without looking to see what else was on the album. When I saw what the other tracks were, my heart sank ('Somewhere over the Rainbow', for God's sake! Who wants to listen to that? I thought that the album comprised other contemporary songs like 'Angel'). Well, now I love that track - it is a beautiful arrangement, with excellent harmonies. Likewise 'O Holy Night', and 'Morning has broken' (as I name those songs, I can see why my heart sank - they sound as if they would only appeal to those over 60 and people who go to church every week).

Incidentally, the last thing I am is religious. Or old. I just used to be a Head chorister, and have a very broad taste in music (primarily rock & pop - certainly not classical).

In short, this is in my opinion an excellent album. It is worth buying for 'Angels' alone - Simon Cowell himself said that that track makes him feel that 'everything is suddenly right in the world'... 'it completely relaxes me - I love it'. (See his interview at:
[...]

Incidentally, the first few people to review this album on Amazon did so before it was released. I can never understand people who do that - how can you write an honest and accurate review of something that you have not seen or heard?

I felt I had to post to counter the handful of inexplicably negative comments. This album contains some absolute gems. My system is a recently acquired Bose "Acoustic Wave" - the sound quality is sensational. Don't get me wrong, not every track hits the button, but three or four are absolutely outstanding. A "must buy" cd.

Like Angelis? Try Vox Angeli.
My wife 100% loves the Angelis album. It always helps her get to sleep - in a good way - but after a year and 300 plays, it reached a point where she would be asleep withing 60 seconds of playing it! Who needs sleeping pills? Anyway... why no second album from Angelis?
I was casting around for more to feed her addiction as a forthcoming present. And I found it - Vox Angeli, from France. Very similar in concept (compare the 2 CD covers) but the French voices are slightly more to the fore, from memory, and a little less well-trained, but that's also in a good way. The voices are also more simply backed, with piano well to the fore, rather than the voices being lost in a sonic string synthesiser echoey soup.The French language, for me, adds to the overall experience rather than detracts. Vox Angeli have two CDs available - at decent prices if you look around Amazon's sub-shops. And I think a 3rd one is on the way - already available as a download. Let's hope she likes them.

I think that there is no better discription then angelic voices. The whole album is great, an excellent way to relax and forget all that surrounds you.

I have never been interested in this sort of music in any way until i picked up the album in a shop one day and thought this looks boring. I went home and forgot about it until i went on the internet and saw the website, went to it saw Cowell give his speech looked about found "Angel" loved it, listened to other tracks on the net and immediately went out and bought it. I have never regretted it and love it to this day. I think the previous reviewer should have done the same as me before buying it. The only thing that annoys me is that these kids had talent and Cowell made his money and has ignored their potential. Well that about sums him up i suppose. Thoroughly recommend it.

The children have exquisite voices marred by the heavily engineered effects to create a deep harmony sound. It really is noticeable on a better stereo system, may not be as bad on a consumer level system, but using reference speakers and a valve amp really highlights, unfortunately, the heavy handed sound "enhancements".
Would have liked to have heard Angelis in a purer recording.
