The Angels

The Angels, Metaboles' new album from NoMadMusic, immerses the listener in the twists and turns of spiritual music. The works of Purcell, Byrd and Palestrina, champions of 17th century polyphonic music, resonate with those of Harvey, a major figure in contemporary music.

The Métaboles revive the splendid tradition of English choirs: from Winchester to the refectory of the monks of Royaumont, where the album was recorded, the Gothic walls of the abbeys welcome sumptuous music, magnified by the acoustics.
