Whether the stark beauty of an 11th century chant, the rich harmonic language of a contemporary Irish work or the rusticism of a Sacred Harp tune, Angelus finds its voice in the wide range of sacred works it performs. Completely unique among American high school ensembles, Angelus is dedicated to the performance of sacred music of varied religious traditions and historical periods. Angelus is comprised of six young women who perform music ranging from medieval chant and polyphony to the American Sacred Harp tradition as well as contemporary American and Irish works.
